Details, I NEED DETAILS! (Re: Power racing car)

So, what's the damage?  I heard we caught fire. (hell yeah!)  What do we need to get up and running again?

Fire?  Hot damn. (Pun intended.) 

Pics or it didn't happen?

Agreed, I want to see this thing run again -- reliably. Bob did a fantastic job on the car, and I saw the video on YouTube -- it whips. :)

the motor is fried I am going to see if they will replace.  It had a 90 day warranty.  I think a larger motor is in order.  Also the bearings in the front wheels took a beating they weren't the best wheels up front.  Will replace with same type that are on the rear that are made for a go cart not a hand truck.  Hope we can get it to go faster and maybe last the 15 laps

Way to bump a 3 year old thread, Ted. :)


But seriously, I committed us to at least ONE car for Power Wheels this year. we're still trying to figure out if we'll be regulation or not this year.
