Side by side packs

There seems to be a lot of people doing soldered end-to-end packs when there is a need for high current delivery. In my case, I need to conserve space so I would like to assemble my 7 cell sub-C packs side by side with 4 on the bottom and 3 on the top. Can I expect any significant amount of extra resistance compared to end-to-end because of the extra cell connectors? Any other disadvantages?

If your connectors are hefty enough for your amperage there should not be any extra resistance. On road RC car racers usually have to use side by side (saddle packs) to keep the center of gravity low.
