Step 2: Wiring the Powerwheels motors

Wire the sabertooth ground terminal (GND) to the battery ground, and take the positive lead of your battery and wire it into a 50 amp switch. (cheap from autozone, 3.99) Make sure the switch is off and wire the other terminal on the switch to the +V side on the sabertooth. The sabertooth has a 5v regulator built in so you do not need anything else but to connect your receiver to the S1 S2 Gnd and 5v on the back of the sabertooth. Two servo pigtails are meant to do this easily, the middle wire always being the +5v.
I have been searching for a linear actuator on ebay but they all sound slow at half and inch or so per second. Is that fast enough?
what kind of battery did you use? is it possible to use the battery that came with the jeep?
the jeep I used was really old and the battery was no good, so I used a lead acid battery. I think that was is a 12 volt 7 amp hour, but if you have to buy one I would get a 12 volt 12 amp hour battery to give you a longer run time

I haven&rsquo;t really thought of what kind of vehicle Pennywise from Stephen Kings &rdquo;It&rdquo;, was driving. &ndash; Now I know.
