lol it would be easier to just get a gel cell! You can pick a gel cell up and a charger with it for around 20-25 bucks. Thats your best bet!!! Or if you want something even more powerful, go lipo man! Both of these options will save you a lot of headaches down the road.

Just get another stick pack to go with the one you have so you have 14.8 volts to run the starter. The 1600 since it is an nicad will be enough. Nicad packs put out more power than Nimh packs so they can be lower rated mah wise. They are dirt cheap also. Lipo is the best alternative though but not cheap and you would need a charger for it too.
