Wanted, info on this kids car gearbox
Long shot but anyone know where to find this older kids electric car gearbox?, looks like a kit car from a long time ago. It has a metal frame and plastic body over the top, do it yourself cut to fit with a 2 prong wheel attachment. I don't have the Craigslist guys info anymore- got it when my kid was too young to drive and now guess what, I can't stop modifying it-.

It just looks like a cyntrifical clutch cover...if you open it it should just be a belt between two v pulleys

Probably right.
Centrifugal clutch setup with a chain, belt or direct gear to gear drive pulley. Covered for safety purposes. Although I see a chain being more reliable in this application, possibly a ribbed belt like some motorcycles. The frame or at least drive motor bracket may be self made judging by the weld.

Oh yes, I opened it up and its just a rudimentary reduction gear box, this thing is very small scale. The previous owner was prob an engineer of some sorts but it's old technology, no bearings.
I don't think a kid over 3 could even fit inside properly -I didn't know what motor would be best but if I could somehow get the other wheel to spin the kid could do early drift lessons.
I since fit a lightweight 12v to counter him actually growing and getting heavier and I can tell he's needing the speed.

In a year it will be too small anyhoos but for now you can only keep up with a fast jog.

After working on it twould be hard to sell but Will see, the newer ones I think are way easier to modify, it's so funny now the lawyers have them going 2 miles an hour

Take it to an RC shop, there are 1/8 scale baja buggies and the such with gas motors... make one of those gearsets work?
