Default Upgrading Barbie Power Wheel!

I have a old power wheel that I wanted to upgrade for my daughter. I also have 2 electric scooters 🛴. So here is my idea 💡 The power wheel is powered by 2 small electric motors and 2 6v batteries. The scooters have motors that are Voltage-24 Current-14 Speed-2750rpm Output-250W. With 2 12V batteries. I want to make a frame for the power wheel body and use the scooter parts.

So Iím wondering what kind of speed could I expect from the scooter motors?

Could I use the brake and throttle from the scooter?

I did some ready on the forum, but Iím still very new to go carts and electric motors.... well Iím not to great with electrical anyway. I know how to install light fixtures and fans but thatís about all Iíve done. More of a woodworker.

Not an easy project. You are more or less going to need to build a frame with axle and then fit the pw body over it. You can use the ESC to power the little stock motors and add another 6v battery for 18v and 7.5mph. Not to say that what you want to do cant be done as a few people have here: http://forum.modifiedpowerwheels.com/
