450+ HP Electric Power Wheels Tank Build! Our Wildest Project Yet!
Yes it is real! A 479HP Power Wheels tank. This will be the world's fastest and most capable Power Wheels build ever! Powered by two salvaged Nissan Leaf Motors and a battery pack from a Ford plug in hybrid. This is our first serious EV swap and we are so excited. This is basically going to be a miniature ripsaw tank from top gear. Full suspension and all! This is our first electric off road go kart build and it is going to be insane!

    Arh man! You guys are amazing! This is all I’ve waited for, and even more - I’ve probably watched every single ev conversion on Yt, and now my favorite guys are doing one... with a tank?!💪💫 if you guys need help/info, go to diyelectriccar.com - great forum for EV conversions! Also: you guys got to replace the canon with an airsoft mini gun

    Can't wait for the future vids! Quick question, I want to build a dual motor EV, if I were to hook up 2 motors up to the "outputs" of a differential, and the "input" to my transaxle, would that work? Basically using a diff in reverse.

    You should build the tank to use actual tracks and build your own tracks. Build the tracks to accommodate two of the Batteries inside the tracks. This way you will have more room for every thing else.

  • KnottyJim

    Awesome project, excited to see it come to life! Just a thought, if you can't fit both motors why not have one with a differential and independant brakes on each track for steering? Having said that I'd love to see the full 450+hp in that thing 😂

    470hp+ in that is suicide. 200hp would be asking for a darwin award, they build drag gokarts with less than you will be using and the power to weight ratio makes a chirons seem feeble. If its geared down abit, you could make a tow vehicle with huge torque but if its geared for speed with that power i dont see how the tracks can survive.

    When I mentioned that the murderer scooter would make a great trio when you throw in the simplicity to Jay mower build and the Wankel rotary engine drift trike I would suggest you replace the track with the scooper tire in the rear

    What’s amazing and has electronics steering I guess that was one of the cheapest ways to get around an engineer in conundrum with a rotating Terrett and not having to use a little linkages and gears to steer the front wheels

    No way to just carry a air canister on it with a valve to fire the shell? Use air compressor to reload it.

    For the gun just make it into a “paintball gun” sleeve a long paint ball barrel inside of a bigger fake barrel so the proportions are correct. It would be easy, awesome, and wouldn’t take up to much room
