oh i was trying to say that the stock system won't turn on, but i didn't give it another try. is it normal for a battery to go from 8.60v to 7.5v and up to 7.8v its very unstable

Buy some deans solder and acid flux from radio shack. You will also need battery bars. Dab some flux on the solder and that will make it stick better. Make sure you have a good soldering iron too. Also buy a battery jig, It will make building side by sides much easier too and you can get them for about $10.
