So I just replaced the throttle switch in my sons lightning McQueen (6V, bumped to 12V) with a drill switch. The switch is labeled 7.2V to 24V 16A. Although amerage rating is a bit low, but it seems to be working fine. Additionally, didn't realize that the drill switch has autobrake when the throttle is released (just like the way the factory throttle would work), a bonus!
