Dewalt battery powered RC car Answered

I have an older RC truck that runs on a 9.6 volt rechargeable battery pack.  I want to see if its possible to adapt my dewalt 18v drill battery to power the truck.  Any advice would be helpful.

You've got this https://www.instructables.com/id/Hot-Rodding-a-Power-Drill-Battery/
ithium ion batteries are another story and they need discharge circuit protection or they might overheat and explode.  You could look into voltage regulator circuits if you don't want to mod the regular nimh or nicad battery. Good luck.
