Ni-Cd Battery problems

Just got out an old project, my Nikko super octane RC car and i have found out why i stored it for 2 years. it appears that the battery pack which is Ni-Cd 9.4v pack is the ist battery ever to be used in such a car. it lasts for approx 5 mins before it kills the car and i have to recharge it. Any tips on a mod or solution to my problem?

Your only option is a battery with higher capacity (mah).
