hey whats up? me and my friends are have been modding power wheels for a while, but in a little more differant way than what ive seen on this site. we take the motors out, build a custom metal frame, metal steering, then we take them down steep hills, get pushed or pulled behind a car and go off jumps! im looking at filing with the guinness world records for the longest jump on a power wheels. heres a few of our older videos
The stock axles are just cheap soft steel. They are not made for more than a hundred pounds really. So unless you went with a new axle of hardened steel there is no way to prevent that. If you are using a metal frame then you can get some bearing blocks for the axle to roll on and then get pneumatic wheels and fix them to the axels. Other than that the stock stuff is just not made for what your doing.
we have noticed that the "bigfoot" tires do not rool well. maybe i could find a hardened steel 10 mm rod,some 10mm skateboard bearings mounted to the frame? hmmmm. id like to keep it as much "power wheels" as possible because i think swapping tires would be, sort of, cheating if im trying to set a record, right?
