Hi Art,

Thanks for your email. Yes, that is an excellent suggestion regarding the 
"stop block" on the front pivoting axle of the wooden kart.

I've added it to the bottom of the page for the kart plans.

If you've any photos of the kart, feel free to forward them on, and I can 
put them on the kartbuilding.net website to help others.

Thanks for the tip again.
