"This configuration allows me to be neutral at the 10ft stop with only 300 psi in my tanks and no air in my wing or suit. Should I change my configuration(different tanks) so that i'm positive"

I wouldn't change it. If you don't mind dealing with the sheer weight of the 104's (92 pounds mt) don't change. That is more air than I would plan on using in my diving that is why I have 71.4's(28 pounds mt) but planning to be neutral at 10' with 300 psi is perfect. Even if your dry suit flooded it wouldn't change your buoyancy . Having a dry suit and a wing you don't need ditchable weight, IMO.
