Re: need help - DIY hi/lo

COOL!! Glad you got it figured out. Now she can learn shifting, and drifting :mrgreen: If it still won't hook up, you can put something small and heavy under the seat between the motors.. just not too heavy or it won't steer.....

Re: need help - DIY hi/lo

Why not just run it on 6 volts until she gets a little bigger???? You can leave the 12 v in there for the accessories, just run the motors on 6 for a while....

Re: Peg Perego tripping breaker and 18v upgrade?

<r>The thermal breaker in the shitter ALWAYS blows and it gets worse when you upvolted. I always remove them, just make sure you put a fuse or breaker as close to the batteries as possible. Your wiring diagram shows 24 volts and will damage the 6 volt batteries immediately!! Do not use that diagram!...
