The C ratings are simply a way of talking about charge and discharge rates for
batteries, the higher u get the faster it drains out.


how about charging the batt, what must be taken note.

Always balance charger the batteries, it helps in the long run.

any mods needed to be done for my car, esc and motor.

Use Deans connectors their good enough.

what type of charger is needed

Any Li-po charger that can balance charger is all u need.

Hope this helps

Yes that is add on. Or your ESC may come with Lipo cut off, meaning that when one of your cell drop below a certain voltage(which you can set), you cannot throttle anymore.
