Powerwheels Mod for ATL Makerfaire

We've got the need, the need for speed...

Yeah I know, full on cheese, but don't that the stop you from helping us mod our PowerWheels electric vehicles to reach a top speed of at least 25mph!

The T-Wrecks team also needs a full pit crew and two more drivers...we're probably going to give one position away to some lucky (valid driver's license carrying) Twitter user here within the next few weeks so stay tuned to @redmountainmake.

Our theme is Jurassic Park, so we also need maker/artisans to help paper mache a full sized velociraptor on roller skates that will perpetually chase the vehicle as we try to outrun it super dino-intelligence.  "Clever girl..."

Help us figure out the motors, battery situation, voltage regulators, fuse system and kill switch.

Meet up with us every Wednesday from 7 to 9 (or later) until the first week in October to knock this project out of the park.  We need your brains and creativity!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
