Default Brake upgrade for EZGO with OEM type 4" lift

I want to upgrade my cart to disc brakes (at least the front).
Cart: 2016 EZGO TXT
Lift: OEM 4" drop axle
Tires: 23" on 14" rims

I can't figure out if there is even a type available that works for this setup.
Any pointers would be appreciated!

I put Mazda Miata discs on mine. You will need to open up the hat a little on a lathe.
Also the holes for the studs will need to be enlarged because an EZGO has bigger ones than Mazda
I only did the rear. I have incredibly powerful brakes.
Dont waste your time on mechanical discs (Ausco). I had to adjust them as much as the stock drums. They stopped better than stock but barely.

I'm seriously intrigued now. Did you use Miata calipers, where did you get the rest of the hardware, etc. Pictures would also be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

EDIT: I just read your signature line! Anyways, more info would still be great!

I did my leg work and found out that Fastest1 did a fantastic writeup on his rear disc brakes! It is an excellent post.....
