I launched (2) C5-3 this weekend. Examining the motors post-flight I noticed a decent amount of cap left on top of the motors. Both flights were as expected, with full laundry ejection. Should I file a cato report for these motors?

I flew a C5-3 that did the same thing last week. It performed great, ejection charge worked fine, but there was significant paper cap left afterwards. Maybe this is a quirk of C5 motors in general.
