  struts.JPG - Here's a close up view of one of the 1440's 8" pneumatic wheels and the custom struts I made.  They consist of a couple heavy duty fender washers that I cut in half and drilled two holes into.  I replaced the bolt on the bottom that used to hold the standard tires with a threaded one, and attached the modified washers from it to the new tire bolt on the top. As a test, the other day I stood on the pack with the heavy batteries, etc. inside.  Even enduring a combined weight of about 400lbs (cringe), the wheels did not bow in at all.  That's ROCK SOLID engineering.  I'm very proud of it.
