Re: OT - Who Here Fixed Up the Toy Jeep for thier Kid

The traction is crappy on these things but its the zero flex that really sucks! My grandkids get "air" on the front tire on every little hole they drive over. I have to admit I like seeing them do that! Gonna have to get some "poser" shots of lifting the front wheel. So now what, coils or leaf springs?

what about Rhino lining the tires for traction? Ive been thinking about doing that to the P/W's 4wheeler Ive got for my boys. And maybe a custom aluminum diamond plate jeep body.

Ya , I dont think Rhino would do , the hex head srews turned into the tires seem good and easy and cheap [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Its the 8 inch lift and dual batteries thats going to require some thought [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: OT - Who Here Fixed Up the Toy Jeep for thier Kid

you know I was thinking about the motor situation....they
are basicly drill batteries. so, why not use 18v batteries and use 6v gel cells in series 6+6+6=18v.

Re: OT - Who Here Fixed Up the Toy Jeep for thier Kid

With that battery setup wouldn't you drain the batteries down before you could have much fun? Also would there be enough amps to push the whole rig???

I have always though of getting a small 5hp go-cart chassis and transfering the tub over... Now that would be fun with some aggresive tires and a real roll bar. Heck, some aux. lights might be added as well.
