Swps is right on doing the 2-4cell packs to get 8s. As long as it's the same options on the pack you are good.

I run 10s on 2-5s and a 6s/4s setup and they work great.

I run all turnigy packs from hobbyking. I love the compact packs but on this I already had a ton of 5s 5000 so just used them in the jet

I have a bunch of the new Revo 435 5900mah 4s and 6s. Great cause I can mix and match for 4s, 6s, 8s, 10s, and 12s.

So would anyone be interested in buying my built Cobra as is? Without the Guardian and RX?
I prefer not to ship and live in Mid Atlantic region - Maryland / DC / VA /PA.

In the meantime I have a handful of HS-5085MG servos I can swap the stock ones out for on the control surfaces and flaps. Doing an initial search it looks like the stock plastic gear is problematic as one would expect. Are the all metal Viper retracts any better? I plan to yank all the stock electronics - esc, sequencer, etc.. and put in a Jeti ESC and 12 channel RX . Im hoping to also squeeze in 2 Revolectrix 4.35 5900mah 6s packs. It looks pretty roomy in there. Anything I should look out for as far as the airframe itself?
I have found the stock retracts to be quite durable. The plastic mount for the gear will give way and have to be re-glued before the gear itself breaks.

If there was a mod to do for the gear, I would change the nosewheel to a strut with two wheels instead of one, like on the stinger. That will give better traction after landing. I've had it lose grip after touchdown and slide off the runway before.

Even with weight of 8s, it can land pretty slow.

Stickers are coming off first thing. May go with an agressor squadron scheme or a trainer like someone posted previously.
