Hi Vekke, that sounds very similar to a drag racing pack, but those cells you identified are low amperage devices. Here's one reviewer's quote.
"Delivers current up to 8-9 A without problems, then turns off the PCB."
You're only asking for 342 A, which seems small, but you'd still need to parallel almost 50 of these cells for that kind of current. Competitive EV drag racers aren't hitting the track with less than 2000 amps on tap these days.
Check out the National Electric Drag Racing Association forums. Most of those guys are either going LiPo or some proprietary cells by Derek Barger at
Battery Packs
