Well this is the instructable for you.
Today I will share how I upgraded a few of my rc cars.
You will need:
RC car that runs off of AA/AAA that you don't mind messing with (and possibly breaking)
Lipo rc battery (this will very depending on the car)
Screwdriver(will also very)
Electrical tape (optional)
Dremel tool with bits ( optional)
WARNING only do this project with adult supervision!!! There is a chance of Jim shocked and the possibility of fire if you do this wrong! please do not complete this project without adult supervision!!
I take no responsibility for any mishaps or injuries to you/ people during this project!
Step 1: Batteries!!
Next count how many batteries were in the RC car, multiply 1.5 V by however many batteries you have, it should look like this, 1.5 x 6=9 or
1.5 x 3=4.5, it all depends on how many batteries do you have.
Once you have this information do you know what voltage lipo battery you need, you probably won't get the exact voltage in need with the lipo ,but if you can't get the exact voltage go to the next lowest voltage, my car for instance my car needs 9 V but I am using a 7.4 V lipo battery. Your car will still work great it would actually work better than a a batteries the difference is in the themselves batterys. the lipos can let their charge out faster than AAA or AA Batteries. Make sure you do not go for a higher voltage battery as there is a possibility you could blow something up....
Step 2: Remove the Cover
I have electrical tape wrapped around because the Shocks were falling out of the main body.
Step 3: Find a Home for Your Battery
Find the wires coming from the battery compartment. Now get creative you have to find a place to mount your battery, it can be just about anywhere on the car itself, you could mount it in where the old batteries were you just have to chop out a few of the fins. Or you could mount it on top the circuitboard Housing. You can even mounted on top of the car if you feel it's needed, just make sure you can get to the charging plug when you're done.
Step 4: Clear a Path
Step 5: Cut the Battery Clip
The finished product should look like something in the picture.
