I have a killer deal for you then. I have a Poly RC 3S1P 30C 4500mah pack that is basically brand new (use the best cells made by Enerland). The 30C packs came with 8AWG wire (8mm fat) and I swapped out the wire for 10AWG (6mm thick). The 8AWG wire was too thick and heavy (Pack lost 41 grams just from changing the wire. It also went from 54mm wide to 48mm wide). After I changed the wire I re-shrink-wrapped the pack and then taped up the ends with black electrical tape for further protection. I even re-applied the sticker. I ran the pack twice to test it in my 1/8th brushless MBX5R. The 1/8th scale cars really need higher voltage so I never bothered running it again as I decided to stick with 4S so the pack is basically brand new.
It currently has a pair of Castle Creations 6.5mm gold bullet connectors on it but i can change them out to Dean's Ultra Plugs if you use them instead.
