Well, some more good news.....
It was $50 less
That's cuz only the lights and sounds work =(
I'll wait for a response before doing anything, but that board has to be bypassable for drive action, only catch is the shifter doesn't seem to be up to the task of handling any significant amperage. I was eyeballing a hurricane shifter, but didn't see what size hole the original is.
More bad news
The "box o parts" wasn't quite what I expected. There's a pedal and shifter, but that's about it.... the wheels, motors, and gearboxes are for a power wheels Harley. The truck has an original battery, but it Kelsey'd.
EVEN WORSE NEWS
Now it's near 2 hours further!
I did almost 250 miles here today. I'll dig into testing the board tomorrow? I gotta get that thing running, cuz it's freaking huge, and I've got NO WHERE to hide it!!! When she sees it, it's going to have up to maybe a week before she won't get off my @§§ to be driving it.
I really wish you'd use a darn phone.... this would be SO much easier!!!
Well I've read about there being some level of a recall, maybe startemyoung or CJB mentioned it??? And the shifter, pedal, and board ALL look similar to this DJG corvette I have, just like what Mr Pat has. I'll see if I still have the info, and give them a call tomorrow and see if "by chance" there's any level of coverage??? No I did make mention to the pleasantly chested woman about her tendency to mail in warranty cards, and if this was involved in the recall, I don't think it's been upgraded, because my DJG plug has a fuse in the battery plug, and the fire truck doesn't.
Monkey, have I told you I hate you? I very much despise having to think while I type! Yes, yes, I know, I'm long winded on the phone too, but this novel is like an hour in!
I had called before buying the vet, and the nice lady at the 800# said ownership is NOT the priority, getting a safe product under a kids butt is, or something to that effect?!?! So I'll fart around, and hopefully get/have/determine some juicy facts about what's going on with it, otherwise, it's here, and one way or another it's gotta be gone or working by August 13th for the fireman's block party. Besides, you need time for your customization. I'll see what I can do as far as some local badges too.
