What's your opinion on Toy ride on car Mercedes SLS amg?

I've reserved one to be picked up tomorrow because I thought for an electric ride on car it's a good price. I don't know really know much about them other then the prices in toysrus. It is $199 and on the box it doesn't say whether it's 6V or 12V. Thanks in advance.

6v for sure if it's rated for 2.x km/h. It will be painfully slow to walk with and slow down even more for uphills.

We got a 6v Mario one and the first thing I did was modify it for 12v. It was actually unsafe crossing streets in the neighbour hood cause it was so slow. With the 12v, it goes around 8km/h.

Two weeks ago I was at toysrus looking at the cars. The guy who helped us told me that the only difference between 6v and 12v is that I have to charge 6v often and it would give me 4 hours of drive. He also said that 6v and 12v speed is the same.

Also how do you modify? Will it be safe? I better look on YouTube to see if anyone showing how to do it. Thank you

Life lesson of the day: never take electricity advice from someone also selling barbies and stuffed animals. 6V probably won't go anywhere on grass or uphill.

We modified my nephews 6V John Deere to run off a 12.4V car battery we stuck in the rear truck bed of the Gator. That thing flew off road and up hills like you wouldn't believe...uncle of the year! Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Where do you get the 12V batteries? And also is it safe to modify? How do we know this car can handle 12V battery? It would be great if you could answer these questions.

I'm watching YouTube videos on how to change batteries Face With Tears Of Joy But so far no one has mentioned about modifying from 6v to 12 v will be dangerous.

It was an old car battery (actually marine) that my brother in law had laying around. Of course it's dangerous, otherwise it wouldn't be as much fun. lol
