Default Discharging Stick Packs

Anybody can give me suggestions on discharging a stick pack? I have an Integy octane 2 that is designed for saddle packs. What do you guys use???

Thanks,
Roy

10 car tail light bulbs wired in Parallel with a deans plug on one end. it does a good job and discharges at 20 amps.

What he said, got one made for me not 20 amps on mine but 17.5 still close enough and more than a 540 motor draws anyway.
