Started riding with a group about a month And a half ago. Usually we ride between 40 and 60 miles. There's even talk of doing a century this year. I have candy c pedals and scatante mountain bike shoes. Was wondering if road shoes and pedals would would be enough of an advantage to be worth the money.

Unless you're experiencing discomfort from the smaller pedal, I don't think you need to change. I believe this is the chief complaint about mtb pedals vs. road.

I've never used road pedals. I suspect road shoes are, generally speaking, somewhat less comfortable than touring shoes but more efficient in transfer of power. Most of the touring/mountain shoes and SPD sandals I've used had soles stiff enough to prevent for me the discomfort on the ball of foot many experience with MTB pedals.
