You should be good with what you have there. One question about the much more fan setup. I'm not familiar with it, how does it hook up?

Great setup and if your running brushless get the motor heatsink. Its keeps everthing so cool. One tip with Novak cutoff, once it starts sputtering power stop, it seems to charge quicker that way.

A charging balancer, i'd make sure u get one.. they are pretty cheap and will keep the battery in good health.

EDIT: Do these packs even have a balancing tap?

Yes and www.nexusracing.net has the orion lipo balancer and directions on how to make it work for these kinds of packs.

Unless you are running MOD I wouldn't bother with a cooling fan. You will just end up wasting space and weight...But if you feel you need it go for it.
