Those cell IRs still look suspicious. They look high for a pack of that size at normal temperatures and unusually well matched. I see it is an old pack so would expect the IRs to be drifting apart, even if they were well matched to start with. If you flew a pack with those figure it would be pretty weak; with a total of 110milliohms, 20A would drop the volts by 2.2v until it heated up which would give very poor performance.
Could you post a few results from other packs and also the IR of the pack as well as the cells as this gives a cross reference check. There should be a difference of 6 -8 milliohms between the sum of the "Cell" readings and the "Pack" reading.
This difference is the resistance of the connector + leads + terminations.
