Here are a couple of Toy Audley RC cars which recently got a lipo swap

The bigger one is an AMG Mercedes Benz and the smaller one is a Subaru Impreza. Both using 2x AA / AAA batteries which i replaced them with lipo batteries;



Actual size comparing them with a Tamiya TT-01;

For the smaller one (subaru impreza), i used a small lipo battery which i got from a keychain spy camera;




I added a charge port inside the battery compartment;



For the bigger one (amg mercedes), i used a Walkera 4G3 lipo battery;



Same case, i also added a charge port on the battery compartment using a connector compatible with a Walkera 4#3 charger;



Charging both of them;

Depends on your preference. The two cars that were modded on this thread are non-proportional control RC cards Meaning you can only move forward,reverse at a single speed, turn left/right at a single steering angle. The aim is actually to improve certain components on these cheap rc cars. If you want a setup with a better control mechanism, (proportional steering/throttle), then i suggest you get one of those xmods/atomicmod cars.
