I have a 12v f-150 raptor (2 seater) I got for $100 that only had been ridden a few time. Looks brand new. I got a 6V and a 12 volt both 12 amps from Gruber. Obviously I plan on making this a 18 volt. I have some LED lights and a buck converter to step down the volts and amps. I plan on making the head lights work and maybe illuminating behind the body I heard the the lights kind of glow through the plastic. No tail lights because they are currently just stickers and not easily converted like the head lights. I have a volt/amp display with a shunt I plan on mounting on the dash. I got the 18v drill trigger everyone refers too and I plan on ignoring the orange brake wire and not adding a brake peddle. I am still contemplating wheels. I don't really like the look of cutting up a BMX tire and just adding tread. I saw where someone had taken the plastic rims and mounted a tire and inner tube to it. That way you don't have to modify the drive on the tire. Does anyone see any red flags with this whole plan that I need to be aware of? Are the tires going to be to heavy for stock gearboxes? Is no brakes a huge no-no?
