Is there any way to make the suspension stronger? I made one with my kids (5/3) - they love it! But... although they try to be gentle with it the wheels keep coming off or the suspension breaks :-(

I wish I could help you... the only thing I can say is mess with different parts and you might be able to make your own stronger suspension. But I'm glad you and your family enjoy this. :)

have you ever seen a trial truck, because i think this is scary realistic if you weren't trying to replicate one

~Aeronous~ (author)GTRPLR19952010-06-10

Is that possible to integrate one?

GTRPLR1995 (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-11

No because of the suspension. Although you might if you can make some universal joints, I JUST GOT AN IDEA!!!

Acepilot42 (author)GTRPLR19952010-09-10

what my universal joints? lol

GTRPLR1995 (author)Acepilot422010-09-12

yep, but it didnt work

Acepilot42 (author)GTRPLR19952010-09-13

well duh my universals barely work on my huge buggy i made if you didnt see it already

rlnbkseeberger (author)2010-06-15

for the motor idea, why dont you put gears on the wheels, and make the engine move the chain?

Yeah, That wold work but I don't have a lot of red gears.

looks very plain hmm i need to make this and mod the heck out of it in to something new =P

Fine with me, Mod away cause I also think its very plain.
