The Escalade and old Power Wheels Grave Digger (not the 24v Bravo model) shares the same electrical and gearing system. They're both popular for demolition derbies cause they're indestructible. Two totally different looks but both turn heads when they're spotted on the road. Here's some recommended combinations from our techs and past happy customers:
1. Stage I Kit - So your kid blew a motor and 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 to 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. This kit is also capable of 18 volts of SLA Batteries if you find you need more speed later.
2. Stage II 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 a great economical upgrade and extremely reliable. Some folks start with just the 18v Conversion Kit, use that til the motors die, then do the Stage II 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 Kit, 24v Battery Conversion, Ride-On Speed Control - Max it out! More then double the speed of your car with this plug n play combo. This is the most popular set-up for Escalades and Gravediggers. The optional Speed Control will give you a variable throttle and brake pedal system just like a real car. Plus no more wheel spin.
If your Escalade battery compartment is too small for 18v or 24v batteries (sizes in the product descriptions) you can use our Battery Extension Cord to relocate them under the seat or speakers.
We recommend a Brake Reduction Module with any speed upgrade unless you have hills to contend with or our Ride-On Speed Control.
