    Stock jg m4 s system enhanced.
    Aside from aoe a lower spring and a reshim

    Will the 25c discharge be too high?

    Probably not. I am getting a 11.4v 2200 mah lipo wired to deans for mine. However, I will only be using single fire and i have resistance wiring put in. I think you will be fine.

    OK thanks i didn't think it would be but i was wondering if anyone has encountered problems because the discharge rate is so high

    It's common especially with players who fire their airsoft weapons like real steel weapons (slow trigger pulls instead of firm quick pulls).
    Many will say use a Mosfet to prevent this from happening, when the honest truth is that it doesn't prevent, just slows it down a bit. I personally rather spend the $10 on new contacts when they go out. It's not a common occurance.

    I had my trigger contacts burn out on my echo 1 stag before I got a MOSFET. Well made a mosfet

    Well, with the few milliamps that goes through the trigger contacts with a correctly designed and wired mosfet unit, it will take 300 years for them to fry. Your JG will run perfectly fine on the battery you mention. It's a common misconception that a higher discharge battery does more damage, the battery doesn't do any damage at all, it's the motor that decides how current goes through the wires. I run 11,1v li-po's that can deliver 56A continously, and 112 amps in short bursts, but my trigger contacts would probably hold up fairly well without a mosfet unit, because the motor is extremely efficient and draws very little current.
