    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. :)
