You guys need to give a123 cells a try. You can lower the side walls to the battery trey a little and they will slide right in there. Then build 3 2s 1p packs & tape them togather, put a deans plug on each pack. Once you have done this build a parallel wiring harness & connect it to the esc. Then build a series wiring harness and connect it to the charger. Then you can build a 6s balancing plug for the cells. You can leave the balancing plug on at all times since none of the wires will complete any sort of circuit when they aren't plugged in to the charger. Now, you can charge your $50 pack built from dewalt cells in 15 minutes on a mrc 989. Oh yeah, its a 6900 6.6 volt pack. If you want to dummy proof the setup then use 3 differant types of connectors. Perhaps you could use deans, the new traxxas ones, & some other high current connectors. This way you never have to pay attention to what your plugging stuff in to. These cells will give you around 1500 cycles out of a $50 pack.
