With that setup, you NEED to get the SXS packs.

As far as i know, the slash can only take 7 cell SXS. That is really all you need. Any more and its just adding unneeded weight.

Take the shink wrap off of stick pack, desolder all the tabs that connect the cells, then get high quality battery bars (like Deans) and solder the cells onto the battery bars.
