Arctic Cats are a great all around the farm vehicle. They can go just as fast as any other Power Wheels, are good on and off-road, and have the bonus of being able to carry a payload. Here's some of our techs' recommendations based on the happy responses we've had from customers and the budget you've got to work with.
1. Stage I Kit - So your kid blew a motor you want to spend just a little more to get a little more out of the car. The Stage I Kit is exactly that. You'll get a 10-15% speed gain and have all new motors start with. If your stock battery is worn it may pop the breaker, so be prepared to replace it if needed with our longer run time 12v that has a higher amp fuse.
2. Stage III Kit, 18v Battery Conversion, Ride-On Speed Control - This combination will give you about 60% more speed and more run time, plus the durability of hardened steel first gears. This is the most popular upgrade for Arctic Cats as it keeps the speed reasonable for their designed use. Some folks start with just the 18v Conversion Kit, use that til the motors die, then do the Stage III upgrade. The optional Speed Control will give you a variable throttle and brake pedal system just like a real car. Plus no more wheel spin.
3. Stage IV or V, 24v Battery Conversion, Electronic Speed Control - Max it out! More then double the speed of your car with this combo. Make sure your child is ready for this much speed in an open car! The optional Speed Control will give you a variable throttle and brake pedal system just like a real car. Plus no more wheel spin.
We recommend a Brake Reduction Module with any speed upgrade unless you have hills to contend with or the Ride-On Speed Control.
