CPP has the kevlar HD belts like used on utv, one of those might work. Sure works nice on my clone so far.

I found a snowmobile belt that works PERFECT. Shifts up on the trail but shifts down perfect when you get on it. Used it all summer, never thought to get pics or video and now it's snowing again. I think the stock belt was too short for the larger SRV primary.
I'm learning that the stock golf cart front end was not designed for speeds over 15mph. It get's really sketchy. I passed a RZR on the sled trail just for the hell of it this summer, definitely got a "what a dumb a**" look from the driver as I was swerving all over the trail at 40+.

I picked up a hyundai with a worn out suzuki in it for $100 that I'm going to rebuild or clone swap for a slower and more relaxing and drunk friendly cart, the columbia is too fast to drive without a helmet and being stone sober.

Time to find a trashed atv that can donate a disk brake front end to that cart.

Yip, that's exactly what I plan to do. Keeping an eye out. It could really benefit from the steering, suspension, and most of all front brakes.

Rear only drums that are out of adjustment don't really do a whole lot other than give you a false sense of security.

The best thing seems to be to get either a cart stock rack for the steering or a rack for a buggie build.....use that with the atv front, you have to locate it right so you don't have bump steer. It really works nice though.

On yamaha (some different carts use same drum brakes) they have a little adjuster that freezes up. My brakes were so-so and took them out to replace, turned out all I had to do is free up that thing and clean things up, sanded the drum a little, assembled and they lock up 22s if I really press them. My existing shoes were good, they work fine now. With the clone I'd like to have front brakes mostly for climbing as I rarely run flat out speed anyway.
