Default Thinking maybe 8s

Rite now my setup is align 650L and align100a eac im running 6s 15t pinion useing flightpower 5350mah they have worked well 5 min. flight time hard flyin, around 2200 hs,I have noticed my 600 is getting a little sluggish toward the end of the flight,so my question is can the align esc and motor take a 8s battery,and if so what do you guys think I should use and what size pinion should I go with,thanks

The stock Align motor and esc can only be used on 6s setup.

Due to the cost of replacing your motor and esc for an 8s setup, I'd recommend upgrading straight to 12s.
