Like i said, there are flaws in this idea. Lol thats why i never attempted it. I decided against two axles when useing a smaller pully would work better with less work and whieght. Plus i prefure to have an open diff for better steering function, transaxle life, tire life, and not leaving tracks through the yard.
I have three transaxles i think would work best for a kart application. All are all MTD. MTD commonly uses a variabe speed pully system rather then multible forward speeds in the axle. Two of mine are simply forward, neutral, and reverse, and one (the biggin) has high and low range, neutral and reverse.
