For using 2 2s or 7.4v li-po pack you will want to wire them in series.

paralel is used for if you want to keep the voltage the same but increase the mAh rating or give you more run time (although 7.4v will not work very good in an electric 8th scale), series increases the voltage, but keeps the mAh rating the same and that is what you want to do for the e-8th scale.

Parallel will keep the voltage 7.4, and double mah.

Series will make the voltage 14.8 and keep the mah the same.
