as long as they are strapped in tight and the wiring connector is correct you will be fine

Assuming the the packs are of similar age and have had similar charge cycles, you'll have no probs. If not, set the LVC to something more conservative like 3.5v or even 3.7v per cell..
If you're worried about the pack separating on the track, then just buy some heavy duty self adhesive velcro from the hardware store and velcro the packs together.
