Need help with modified powerwheels toy/ adding more voltage after the main board?

    Hi Guys,

    I thought I'd ask the experts. I have a kids Powerwheels toy that I would like to add more voltage to. The vehicle is setup with 24v stock and I would like to add another 6v bringing it up to 30v. I not really sure the motherboard can take the additional voltage. Would it be safe to use a SPST relay and add 6v directly to the motors, bypassing the motherboard? So my setup would be running the stock 24v through the entire circuit and the additional 6v would be combined just before the motors when the relay is activated?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Are you changing the motors to higher voltage versions?
