I usually do it to “wake up” the battery. If it’s not needed anymore I’ll just charge and go.

I don't see this being necessary
Sometimes a "wake up" is smart.. but I shouldn't matter so much

So far I have been very happy with the 6000 2 cell packs, charging and discharging at 20 amps.

Planning in picking up a new shorty, which one would be recommended for 2wd offroad stock racing, on astro turf (high traction)? A main club racer, so looking for that extra edge...

I noticed that there's 3 options for shorty:
- 3800mah 130c, recommended for high traction;
- 4500mah 120c, recommended for mod racing;
- 5100mah 100c, recommended for stock racing;

I guess I got confused because I always thought lightweight and high C discharge rate is best for stock racing, but on the website the heaviest/lowest C discharge rate is the one recommended for stock.

Thank you!

Stock usually wants the biggest stick for highest mAh/avg voltage at end of the run

What about the lower C rating for the biggest battery? Wouldn't it be best to have a high C rating for stock, for extra punch?

dont quote me here, but Im fairly confident c rating is in direct relation of the capacity. So that larger pack, that has a lower c rating, can actually handle more amperage.
