Hello! I'm brand new to this so I'll get to the point. I have 3 jeep pws for my kids (2 wranglers and 1 enforcer). The enforcer I got with no batteries, so I rigged a 12v lawn mower battery. It ran really well for awhile, but eventually the motor (s) burned up....smell and melted motor cover! I did not rig a fuse inline to the battery, so should probably do this? I want to order new motors for this machine and what I am gathering from the forums is to go with the 550 titan or the gt 550. Sounds like one forward and one with the reverse timing? The whole gear/pinion is confusing to me. Can I run the stock pinion or will the upgrade eat it up? My boys run on asphalt (our driveway), grass once in awhile, but we do follow a derby circuit and run on dirt for up to 15 mins. at a time. Also I plan to stick running a lawn mower battery.....but have read where some are running drill batteries.....any input on this one way or another? The 2 wranglers are stock(Batt, motors, etc), but if I can get the enforcer set up correctly, then the wranglers will be up for modifications as well. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
