Guys, need advice about brakes: Are front drum-brakes decently safe for a 1 seat go-kart?

The front wheel hubs I sourced have built-in mechanical drum brakes, and in good condition. The project originally calls for rear hydraulic disc brake, nothing in the front. Such a break system will cost alot. I'm not looking for high-performance, just reasonable safety.

WDYT?
