    60amp continuous or 105continous if u only need 60amp the 4000 is better, if u need 105amp the 3000 is better

    It depends on what you need. If what your running needs more than 60 amps then the 3000mah one is better bacause it can supply more amps, if what your running doesnt use that many amps then the 4000mah one is better because you will have better run time. I think either one will work in the stock summit but if you make it brushless the 4000 one might not be good enough.

    i say the 3000 one, its a 20c difference! ..but its 11.1V and 11.1X 2 = 22.2V and the stock esc only rated to 16.8V
    Lead, follow, or get out of my way!

    It depends.. the 4000 mah will "theoretically" give you longer run time, but it has very low amp rating, possibly making the pack get very hot, not supplying enough current to your ESC and making it go slower.

    The 3000 mah will give you "theoretically" less run time, but much better cooler temps, stronger punch acceleration and supply more current for your ESC keeping the whole system happier.

    The stock ESC can only handle 4s max.. for stock motors and stock esc i would get something that can supply at least 60 amps continous.. the higher the better though..

    C rating X battery mAh / 1000 = Amp output.
