Hi, my nephew got a Hot Wheels jeep(R8932) today for Christmas and it really has trouble getting around the yard. I haven't been able to look at it very good yet, but i was thinking 2wd would help it a lot, then more power if needed.

I was just needing help on whats all needed?
3A gearbox
motor
driver

Suggestions on other upgrades are also welcomed. Thanks

Well that is the first steep getting that other drive wheel pushing him. How old is he? If he is close to 3 or over then you could hit it with 12v instead of 6 to get him up to 5mph.

Adding an extra gearbox and motor is simple.
There's a spacer on the one side that's the same size as the gearbox.
See my Lil Jeep for some ideas on how it fits together.

Post a (WTB) Want To Buy for the extra gearbox & motor. (I might have one in the box of parts...)
