Ordered my new engine today. Gonna be a brand spanking new briggs and Stratton 24Hp vtwin pro series. Should be enough to do what I want.

Would have loved to get a vanguard, but Iíll see how this one does for now. If I can go bigger in the future, I have 2 carcass vanguards that need new blocks my small engine guy is willing to give me. They are just too big for the current race Iím building for.

Small engine guy in town pointed me to here where I was able to find what I need.

https://www.chinapartsdepot.com

They are Vancouver based, and pricing is in Canadian funds.

The car caliper requires a much thicker rotor.  So the standard cart rotor wonít work. 

Look up Carrier Performance, he is in Canada.  I bet he can help you with duty/shipping costs.

So you donít think I could use the car caliper with a Non car rotor? Such as a sprocket or similar?

$180us after shipping, duty, conversion etc = might as well buy the ATV brake bundle I was looking at today. Which I will probably do unless I can find an atv bone yard to scavenge.

Most of the kart brakes Iíve seen available online say they are rated for 150-250cc, the engine Iím looking at is rated 724cc, will a kart brake have enough stopping power?

There no kart track around here so used stuff would be hard to find, and :censored: farmers toss their dead equipment in the field/pit never to be seen again.

I still have a bit of time before Iím ready for it, so I canít still think on it, just want to weigh all mom options.

The rotor will be an issue.  It will be heavy and hard to mount. 

Find some used cart stuff.  Used brake parts are usually cheap.   
 Check out new MCP stuff.   It is reasonably priced and is good stuf.  You can get a complete kit for $180
