Hi everyone

New to the scene, have a 4yo boy and a 2yo girl who love riding on my lawn tractor with me so grandparents got them an electric car, then I got the bug and turned to ebay. I now have 5 electric vehicles, a car, a tractor, 3 jeeps - most got from late night silly bids, now I want to make them better, starting with a Feber Jeep which has 12v, 2 motors, only forward and reverse, with little traction left on the tires!!!

So today I wanted to fit an old drill switch mod to make the throttle soft start/variable so I could put rubber on the tires and up to 18v without stripping the gears- failed as I blew up the switch :o as there was 5 connections on the throttle, unlike the power wheels which has 3 (as seen on many threads) - I managed to wire it up the wrong way!

It may be a first faliure but no giving up, I am enjoying it (apart from the bang and smoke) and as soon as I get another drill, going to try again! Any help would be appreciated. :D
