Odd Motocalc C rating opinions

Im trying to understand why if i enter a lipo set at say 20C, motocalc will be happy temperature etc wise. If i change the cells to a higher C rating eg. 25C, motocalc returns temperature alerts. I would expect the opposite.

No biggie but this is really a power systems question and would best be served here,IMO.


Simple answer is that a higher C LiPoly should in theory atleast maintaing higher volts wunder load and this will result in the motor turning more RPMs and thus producing more power (watts) and thus more heating.
