This is just a list to see how many Texans are still active MPW members. So just introduce yourself and let us know where are from. I will start.

Im Skyler, I live in San Antonio at the moment. I have two kids, ages 2 and 3. We have too many Power Wheels to list, but my sons favorite is his Mustang. If anybody has a Grave Digger they want to let go for cheap, please let me know.

I have a ton of parts, so if you need something just ask.

Ok... now its somebody elses turn. Dont let me down.

North Houston Here.

2 kids - 2 and 7

We like the ATV's. We have a Brute Force, an older Blue Ninja and a KFZ Ninja that smoked a motor this morning. Any one have a good motor I can purchase? I was thinking about upgrading both motors while I had it apart. Anyone ever changed out the motors on a KFX? Any issues I may run into? Thanks in advance.

There is a SF vette on CL in Lago Vista, looks like its in pretty good shape, sounds like a motherboard problem. Might be able to talk him down. On the list for 30. Someone get it. If I had the cash and time to go down there I would.

Yea, wish I could get it. I also know of a Dumar Raptor I was gonna get for free, until I found out the lady is in Georgetown. I will ask her if she would give it to someone else, and if its ok to give her email to someone. Even though it is a Dumar, I would still hate to see it a a dump.

I'm another Round Rock guy. Not on here as much as I used to be, but i still look in from time to time. Still manage to keep about 4-5 vehicles running at any one time. Just burned up the motors in my 5$ ninja quad after running 24v for over a year - guess its project time again.

Howdy All!
My name is Bill, and I'm from Slaton.
I've been lurking on this site since Feb 2008 Guess it's time I show my "face".......
That was about when I started on my current (and still unfinished) mod, a pink Dumar Little Princess Solstice for my first Grandaughter. My youngest daughter has since had two chil'ens of her own. That's two more projects in my near future.... I'm thinking red mustang for the little lady and a metal frame jeep for the young man.
I cannot thank you folks enough for the huge effort you have put into this site to save newbies such as myself from even huger effort and expense.
But, I'll try. Thanks!
Bill

Hey guys and gal. Randy here in San Antonio on the NW side. I have about 6 or 7 PWs, only keeping 3 or 4. I need to par the others out. This is a quick addiction for me. I only started about 2 weeks ago when I was looking for a Gator for my son. 4 PWs, and 4 Peg Peregos later, I do at least own a Gator

Any one know a good way to mod the kid trax charger...I've got an idea to put a relay on the + side to one motor and the - side to the other motor so when fast forward is selected it trips the relay and adds 6 volts...but this is only in thought...I have not put it to test...

anyone have any plans that were used on a kid trax vehicle?

I'm B.J. and live in Katy, TX (outside Houston). I have twin 4-1/2 year old boys. We picked up a free '92 JEEP last year that I got working and just recently upgraded to 18 volts. We also just go a Dumar Raptor that has bad batteries that I upgraded to 18 volts as well.

Always looking for parts, deals, etc. REALLY want an RZR!

Hey everyone, I'm Joe. I'm in Spring with my two kids 3 and 1.5 and one on the way. So far we are up to 4 Power Wheels and growing quickly. Wife already thinks we have 3 too many. I just keep telling her it's cheaper than playing with the real Camaro.

Im Jonathan, 2 kids, Easy and Avery. We live in Cypress, and have 3 power wheels currently. One is an 18 volt toddler barbie 4 wheeler with a custom paint job and led's. I have another one, a spiderman toddler 4 wheeler which is my first 24 Volt experiment. it should be done in a week or so... the last one is the big fun one, a 36 volt barbie jeep on a metal frame with full suspension lifted enough to run 26" swamper vampires. Going to be 4wd with a full rollcage and spotlights. This one has to be done by february so wish me luck!
