Question How do i convert nimh to lipo battery packs??

So I have got a 1/10 Carisma M40s Touring Electric RC Car. It runs well and has some decent speed. However I have heard LIPO is waaay better. Like on another level.
So the question is, how do I convert from NIMH/mAh into being able to use LIPOS on my rc car?
The car has a 19T Motor.
I need more speed. I mean like proper speed like being able to reach 40 mph.
I also want long run time.
Yeah thats pretty much it.

Simplest way is to get a LiPo alarm (unless your ESC has LiPo setting), to keep tabs on voltage, and a charger that will balance LiPo cells.

Or, better, get a dedicated LiPo charger. I've switched from NiMH to LiPo for airsoft 2 years ago, and quickly followed suit with my models; now, my KV-1 runs even better than it used to!
