Default Toylander

Here's the little ones Toylander which i built three years ago. Its been through quite a bit. Buy the plans off the Toylander site.

http://www.toylander.com/

I used marine ply board and twin motors driving both rear wheels, takes an adult easy.

Its very strong using wood and steel, no plastic even the steering wheel is metal!! Using jigsaw and drill it's surprising what you can acheive.

best bit is you can legally drive it in a park or on the pavement after purchasing the liability insurance.

Dave.

I plan to. Just waiting for baby to arrive, if it's a boy and/or interested in cars then it will most likely happen.

I was looking at the Willys jeep one they do and couldn't help wondering if you could modify it to make it into a Moke

I built a moke gocart to play on. Body is made from 3 pieces of steel and folded for construction. Uses a 1hp gas motor, now trying to make a smaller pedal powered one.

The wheels are from a Suzuki LT50 quad bike and we have never had any issues with ground clearance or wheels hitting the arches.

Fun in the snow.

single or twin wheel drive?? We bought the town & countries and its 24v twin motor, scary as hell when being a passenger due to the driver having no concept of cambers and turning corners at speed!!! Bit of a white knuckle ride to say the least.

Going to progress to build a alfa romeo p3 replica scale using a 200cc engine with centrifugal clutch next . Have the wheels etc just got no time to start it yet..

Twin wheel direct drive via two 370w 24v motors and disc brakes.



I also made a steering box to reduce the effort required to turn the big fat front tyres.





I know what you mean about being a passenger, but they do get better with age.

Are those cable operated go kart discs?? Like the steering set up,geared to make it a lot easier to turn.Should go well with 370w motors in. We are using 180w's with twin 60 amp batteries running through an upgraded speed controller, Goes well for a couple of days on a charge. Fair play to it its been under two feet of water, hit a van, hit the work unit and is still plodding along.

Not so sure my eldest took me for a spin in my mini and must say a couple of over taking manoeuvres had me thinking I was in a chase set from James Bond and he's 23.
