Hello from London! Im

I have recently acquired a Hotwheels driveway racer. I have already stuck 3 x 6v LSA in it and added a 3 way selector switch, choosing between off /12v / 18v.

My god this thing fly's on 18v. I literally have to run to keep up with my 5 year old on it.

However, it is all good having a super fast cart for 1 of my kids, but I have 2 kids and want them to be able to have fun together. I wanted to get a 2 seater jeep kind of thing for them to use. Especially on grass, as the driveway racer will only run on smooth concrete.

I have no interest in something that only goes 5mph, so am either going to do a new 36V jeep upgrade OR take my driveway racer apart and utilize all the parts into a jeep.

Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on which would be the better way to go? I am presuming a fresh 36V jeep build is going to cost £££, so tought using the parts from the driveway racer might be a way to save money.

Ideally what I am after is something that will carry 2 kids (4 and 5 yr old) across grass at a reasonable speed (7mph ish).

Am I just dreaming or is this possible? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
