Default Front tire brakes

Im not even sure if i have ever seen a front brake on a go kart but i want it for spinning the tires. I would have to use a whole new hub and spindles. If the job is under 250$ im up for it. I don't want some red neck brakes either lol. I have had plenty of them in my day and very unreliable.

EDIT:Found same topic in another thread....should of used search.....

umm...if the disc brake was attached to the spindle how would that stop it unless you had a live axel? it would have to be attached to the hub some how.
