    You'll have the extra runtime and the extra weight of the other battery as in parallel you'll have the same voltage

    Apart from double the runtime

    Extra weight
    Slightly higher voltage under load
    Double the power delivery capability

    3 cell parallel is the bomb.

    the benefits far outweigh the cons, and if anything, the car should be more balanced because of the equal weight on both sides.
    ... oh, and sorry about your wallet
