I'm just wondering if anyone has ever used a gearbox out of one of those Fisher-Price Jeeps for a low rpm motor for a prop like an FCG. I would think this would have pretty good torque since it is designed to push 2-3 yard rats around. Hook it up to a DC wall wart??? Any suggestions, comments, or snide remarks????:p

If you don't know what I'm talking about, please see the attachment.

Thanks!

Ack! That's a brilliant idea. Dang me for breathing! I just sold my kids jeep because they finally outgrew it. I wish I had thought of dismantling it. C'est la vie.

Even at the slower speed, I think it would be too fast for an FCG.

However, I have stumbled across a post (or website maybe) one time where a guy built a dark ride in his garage and powered the ride vehicle with PowerWheels motors.

Good luck!

I saw one for free on CL and the wheels started turning....figuratively!
