    Product code: Stage-III-Phoenix-Dune-Racer

    This is the Stage III Motor kit for all 12V Dune Racers, Baja Extremes Racers & Trailsters, & Stingers. The Stage III kit is a great way to add more A LOT off-road torque and speed. Recommended for hardcore off-road hill-climbing trail-riding fun and for 18-24 volt vehicles. Kit includes:
    - 2 massive 775 size Modified motors with internal cooling fans
    - Hardened Steel Pinion Gears attached to motors
    - Torque sleeves on both motor for even more low end powers
    - Quick change wire connectors with no soldering installation
    - Aluminum Vented Motor Mounts to keep the motors from twisting on the gearcases.
    - 4mm motor mounting screws
    - 2 MLToys Phoenix Gearboxes including stronger nylon gears, improved lubricating, stronger housings, and low friction race grease.
    - Fully assembled! Just swap out with your stock motor/gearboxes and follow the break-in instructions!

    Motors are safe for up to 24 volts. Their potential is not seen unless you are running at least 18 volts. We strongly recommend using Metal First Gears when running 18 volts or more. Not for use with lithium batteries unless you use our Soft Start Low Voltage Lithium Module.

    Just like when modifying a real car, modifying a Power Wheels voids all warranties. If you have made any non-MLToys modifications to your car you should reach out to our tech support first to check compatibility. MLToys bears no responsibility for damage to vehicle, persons, or property incurred by modifying a vehicle. Be Smart, Be Safe, and Have Fun!

    Solved my problem of one wheel spinning

    Only one wheel was turning, and some of the speeds were only intermittently even working. I thought it was a motor, so replaced those with the 18V upgrade (worth it). But still only one wheel turned. Turns out it was the gearbox. Pretty easy to replace, had to remove the seat in our PW Baja Extreme, but not a major project. And it fixed the problem.

    Very Satisfied

    Stage lll Motors & Gearboxes work GREAT for our Dune Racer and was easy to assemble, very satisfied!

    Stage 3 motor and gear box kit. For dune racer

    Everything works great. Easy to Install took 30 minutes start to finish. Only issue I have is it took longer than expected shipping wise. Other than that I'm 100% satisfied.

    Excellent motors & gears

    Installed super quickly and easily. Delivered fast. Makes my son’s dune racer much more fun for him.

    Stage III motor and gearbox feedback

    When i first got the gearboxes one of them had the incorrect gear. This was pretty disappointing that some kind of quality control did not catch this. However, when I emailed MLToys on a Sunday they were very responsive with troubleshooting and mailing me the right part. The downside is I had to do the work myself and am worried if something goes wrong the warranty will be in debate... it worked, but I am nervous.

    The car now works great and the kids love it. That being said, in the first session of playing, we went through 3 different 40Amp fuses.... the failure of the fuses seems to align with a sudden start. Any recommendations on how to fix this or else this whole upgrade was a waste :(, can't keep going through fuses every 2 minutes! Please help!
