gokart help!
this is for an 8 hp motor and a small gokart. i am about 135 lbs. the motors rpm is about 2300 low and 2700 high.

ive asked about thye pully sizes b-4 but i want to check again.

will a 4 inch on the top and a 5 inch on the bottom make it so i can go fast n still have enought power to pull me plus some more?

also if i use a V belt with an extra pully that will either b pushed or pulled against the Vbelt will the belt stay were it should be n not go out of polace. and i am also plaining on having 2 small studs on either side just to help it stay in line. will this work?

Have you thought about using a variable pulley?
Snow mobiles use them for low end torque and higher speed.
