Dad Mods Son's Power Wheels Into Zoom-Zoom Cart

August 8, 2012


In other quality parenting news comes the story of little Evan and his worn out Lightning McQueen Power Wheels. Some copy/paste action while I start heating my Progresso New England Clam Chowder and talk to the dog like she's a person because I live a sad, lonely existence:

At the age of 2 Evan received his Lightning McQueen Powerwheel for christmas of 2009. After three years of use he had worn through the plastic wheels. We decided to upgrade the oem plastic wheels to metal rims with rubber tires. From that point more modifications were added every few weeks. Now, Evans Lightning McQueen Powerwheel is equipped with an aluminum back half chassis, dual sealed gel batteries with an output of 24 volts, a 500 watt .66 horsepower electric motor, disk brake, throttle modulated variable speed control with reverse and sparco battery cut off switch.

We chose the song "Real Gone" by Sheryl Crow because it was the opening song of the Disney movie "Cars"

Haha, I was wondering why you chose that song. Because it SUCKS. Just kidding, I only I half meant that. Okay, three-quarters. Anyway, hit the jump to watch the video of the modification process and Evan speeding around in the thing after it's complete. Not gonna lie, it looks way nicer than my car. And it's definitely worth more.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to outspire and todd c, who taped fireworks to their bikes thinking it would make them go faster but only caught their pant legs on fire. Awh man, that doesn't work?
