I see a lot of new members pushing the limits of their Power Wheels and that's what we are all about but I thought it might be time for a thread concerning what to do and what not to do, to certain vehicles. We all want our kids to have fun but we need to make sure our mods are safe.

Let's start with the "pre-school series", this includes any Power Wheels brand vehicle using the BLUE 6 volt battery.

DO's -- Keychain Remote Kill Switch- This is an excellent mod for beginners learning to drive. Kids are mischievious and seem to get a kick out of watching parents chase after them.

12 volt conversion- these lil vehicles can take a bit more power but don't go over 12 volts. The little motors can't take it and you don't want to risk injury to your child.

DON'T -- Just use any old battery, use only SLA (sealed lead acid) rechargeable batteries. We all like to save money but don't do it at the expense of putting your child at risk. Always remember you will need an inline fuse for most aftermarket SLA batteries.

That is all I will add for now. Toddlers learning to drive don't need any distractions like LEDs and too many buttons.

Now onto the Toddler series" of vehicles. These are vehicles using a single red 6 volt battery like single seat Jeeps and VW beetles.

Of course the afore mentioned remote keychain kill mod is desirable for most vehicles but when your child moves onto a Lil Jeep, you might be ready for......

The head and tail light mod. There is already a thread dedicated to LEDs click here to read more..
