Can you think of a better way to forge a solid bond between a father and a son than to take on a building project together? Even if said son is just 5 years old, from the looks of this video made by Sean of aftermarket tuning company FFTEC Motorsports, the youngster named Evan seemed to have enjoyed the process as much as the end result. It all started when Evan’s Lightning McQueen Powerwheel toy ride was in need of new plastic wheels as three years of heavy use had worn them out. As a true gearhead, Evan’s father Sean then decided it was time to initiate the young boy to the art of tuning and ended up making a series of modifications to the toy car including the installation of a new 500 Watt electric motor producing 0.66 horsepower. Sean of California-based FFTEC Motorsports elaborates on YouTube:
“At the age of 2 Evan received his Lightning McQueen Powerwheel for christmas of 2009. After three years of use he had worn through the plastic wheels. We decided to upgrade the oem plastic wheels to metal rims with rubber tires. From that point more modifications were added every few weeks. Now, Evans Lightning McQueen Powerwheel is equipped with an aluminum back half chassis, dual sealed gel batteries with an output of 24 volts, a 500 watt .66 horsepower electric motor, disk brake, throttle modulated variable speed control with reverse and sparco battery cut off switch.”
