Default Suggestions for an upgrade here...

I've included pics of the axle setup we have now, not crazy about the split wheels/rims - want to stay with a single drive wheel...

suggestions for an axle/improved sprocket that will allow us to put some cool wheels/tires on this?

Ideally we'll get a kit that will include a disc or drum brake too - that metal / on / tire brake here is horrendous.

BTW - the blue clone suggestion here worked out REALLY well

disc work best. could get an axle from a atv, usually have hydraulic disc if chinese. you will have to change the sprocket out. they usually run a 420/428/520 chain. grab the hole swing arm so you get the bearings with it.
