First thing Dar, that's a great video! You are certainly very knowledgeable about these packs! If anyone can get Cylindrical cells to work, you'd be that guy. The issue I see on the packs is this, The connectors between the cells seem to be more than just a simple connection, they also appear to function as fusable links, and really aren't up to the current demands you are placing on them. I believe you'd have better luck with parallel packs as opposed to 5 ah packs because you are effectively doubling the current capacity of of the wiring when using 2 (or more) separate packs in parallel rather than using a single 5 ah pack which would have the same current capacity as a 2.5 ah pack due to the fact that the 5 ah pack would have the full current going through the same single foil to output wire connection where with 2 packs they would share the load at that point. You are obviously pretty adept with those packs and may have a different opinion about them. I have almost no experience with them myself, other than to overload a couple of them in the past.
