Default Safe battery for my motor?

I'm getting a Kyosho Ultima Rb6.6 RTR. It comes with a 15.5T brushed motor. It specifies that I'll need UP TO 5000mah Lipo. I read somewhere else that that might be bad for a brushed motor. Should I worry about running 5000mah 60c in that motor? I'm wondering if anyone on here has experience with that specific setup or a similar one. I already ordered the batteries as soon as I ordered the car. Hopefully it'll be alright. Any input is appreciated. Thanks guys.

Doesn't matter don't worry, as batteries do not force their power through your system, they just allow it to be drawn. The mAh rating just shows how long a certain amperage can be drawn, so more mAh=longer runtime. The C rating (in theory) shows how many amps the battery can safely deliver, if the motor draws as much. The only thing to care about is the number of cells, usually 2S for 1/10 scale.

Awesome. Thanks for the reassurance. So those should be pretty decent batteries then? I'm gonna run the piss outta that car when it comes in. Lol Any break in advice? I'm not sure if I feel like using the water trick unless it's actually better to do it that way? I do know much about this stuff. I have zero hands on experience so far.

Yes, 5000mAh / 60C, while not excatly being top-notch, is actually decent enough and should work well with a brushed system like yours. And unless you are going to race this setup in a very competitive spec class, there's no need break the motor in with water, or any of that. Just go an have fun, don't overthink it.
