Need new batteries? Going from 12V to 18V or 6V to 12V? Wiring Questions?

Hi guys,

I do apologize as this is not a 'Power Wheels' but I am located in the UK and can't seem to find anything about upgrading ride on's.

I recently purchased a Jaguar F-Type and my son is already bored of how slow it is.

It comes with 2 x 12v 35w motors and a 12v 7ah battery as standard.

What are my best options for upgrading the motors and battery?

Thanks,

Mike.

Hi Mike,

It's hard to know without getting some more information about the controller inside. Since this a remote-enabled one, it may have the same types of controllers that some of the other brands have, eg. the Leantoys 4x4 mentioned here:

There's limited information available about these controllers. It's not real likely that the board would work as-is at 18V.

They may or may not have internal current limiting -- I would expect them to but have no way to verify it without a module to test. If they do, you can likely just replace the motors in your vehicle with slightly faster ones and it will now have a higher top speed, but will accelerate more slowly since you get less torque for the same amount of current. If they don't have any protection, you'll likely blow the board once you swap in the motors.

If you have a way to get pictures of the motors and any wiring/controllers inside it may help.
