Again, what Juntom10 is really asking is what works well at Sid's.
I myself have been running GP3300's, some hand-made packs and some Pro-match Racing packs. In either case these were used road-racing packs that I bought quite inexpensively.
They all have been pretty good with lots of punch and runtime for 5 minute heats with a 19T in my 2WD stadium truck (the same class Juntom10 plans to run in).
Races at Sid's are won primarily by clean, practiced driving.
All the fancy battery and motor combos in the world won't help you a bit if you don't have the driving skills.

I used 3 year old 3300's last year and I don't think that I had any problems with speed - these packs have been sitting for about 2 years and were pretty much thrown together. This year I'll be running some 3800's and 3700's in both my 2WD and 4WD 'cause they are some packs that are not so great for racing onroad anymore.
My recommendation is to buy GP based packs (3300, 3700, 4300's) since they are a little more resistant to damage by not having great charging equipment. IB or IP based packs (3600, 3800, 4200's) are a little more delicate and unless you have a good charger and discharger, the likely-hood that you will kill the cells will increase.
You can find good deals on 3700 cells now - those will be more then enough for Sids'.
Look forward to seeing you guys out there.
