the cx500 is 10.5 to one compression and has a large rotor flywheel close to 7 lbs so it takes a bit of oomph

It's easier to put an ammeter in the circuit to test  ;) .
Even a cheap automotive one will give a real good idea of whats going on. I keep a couple with extension leads and alligator clips for testing various 'high amp' components. You can also use a shunt and ordinary multimeter. Easy shunt is 19" of 6 gauge wire, (measuring points are at 19") You'll get millivolts (or milliamps, it's years since I did this) which translate to direct amp load in shunt. I guess you have a couple of runners?
 It only takes a few minutes to set up and test

Or just get the bigger capacity battery to be sure.
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.
