Missed Slam #2

This hand is from a recent ACBL sectional in the Sunday A/X Swiss.

We play mainstream 2/1. Add-ons that may have relevance for slammish hands are 1430, Italian cue-bids, and Exclusion KCB.

We missed a couple of slams, this being the second.   are 3-0 but onside.  K is offside.   break 4-2.

I am looking for comments or critiques of our bidding, and/or suggestions on how you would have bid it (ideally using our systemic base). Or maybe you want to tell us you don't want to be in slam (although I'm really assuming you do here, even before hearing about the layout).

 

IMPORTANT EDIT MADE AFTER 4-5 COMMENTS: North's holding corrected to AQ (erroneous first post showed Ax).
