It was time for the spring garage cleanup so I took the opportunity to get a few pictures of the Gaucho fleet (not all of them are in this picture). All of them run and most of them have been re-wired because the stock Perego wiring sucks. The ones that don’t have 24v ESCs have been upgraded to 18v.Gaucho Super Powers Gen 1 & Gen 2. The black Gen 2 has been upgraded to dual 24v 500w ESCs because the stock controller board on the Gen 2 is junk. The Gen 1 is completely stock and runs great. The foam tires on the Gen 1 may be the best stock tires on a Gaucho. They wear fast but the traction on grass is incredible, even when the tires are worn or wet. Gaucho Grandes. One has the toolkit on the back bumper. Gaucho Blue A151, and Gaucho Silver A151. The silver one is a survivor, complete with original battery. The silver one is the first version of Gaucho that Perego sold. The spindles for the steering are steel (all other Gaucho's, including my blue one, use a combination metal/plastic steering). The blue one is our only painted ride-on (bought it that way). The A151s come with really good stock motors. Silver A151 steel spindle vs Blue A151 steel/plastic steering : Gaucho 4.0 Yellow and Gaucho Adventura Jeep. The yellow 4.0 has been updated with a 24v 800w ESC. The black Adventura will get the same upgrade next. These Gaucho versions use smaller 550 series motors. Gaucho Rockin’ and Perego Adventure. I have a new sticker set for the Rockin’ that I need to put on. The single seat Adventure is still a kid favorite on 18v. Perego Challenger Motorcycle, and Ranger GT. The Ranger GT is upgraded with bigger wheels because I could not find the stock ones anymore. The Ranger (and the versions of it) is the only Gaucho with doors. I have the doors stored in a bin somewhere. The plastic bodies on these old Ranger GTs is crazy thick and actually has metal-flake in it. I bought the 12v Challenger Motorcycle on a whim. Never thought the thing would be ridable but my 5 year old started to ride it around the yard last week. It’s slow on 12v but 18v should wake it up. Gaucho Hi-Torques. These were our first two Gauchos and they have been converted back to 12v. They are geared for torque and are slow. They use 2-speed mechanical gearboxes that are cool but impossible to find anymore (and I only have one spare left).
