    All the cars at the Radio Control nationals (held in Independence, OH every year) and just about every other race use soldered battery packs. Thats how I learned how to make packs.

    That doesn't make it the right way to connect batteries. From what I can gather with a Google search, the practice of soldering up battery packs is confined to the RC model racing fraternity. OTOH, soldering to battery terminals is proscribed by all battery manufacturers. I imagine people can make up their own minds on the matter.

    On a serious note: soldering to a Li battery can cause a small explosion or fire with lots of chemical smoke, don't try it.

    Tabbed batteries, designed for soldering, are easily available and are easy to use with no special technique needed. There is no reason for not doing a battery replacement in a reliable and safe manner.
