The Predator 212 with the TC 30 series (10 tooth gear), 60 tooth axle drive gear pull along fine. I'm trying to upload a video, but other than adjusting the dual rear disc braked, I haven't done any other mods to the cart........Beginner's luck?? Don't know. But thanks to all who contributed to my thread.
Use youtube for videos and good job!

Ok, here's the final outcome......I disassembled the TC, put it back together, got the proper belt, installed the 22" tires, gassed it up and low and behold, it ran. Ran very well, too. Thanks for all the input over this project. I seriously don't think I could have completed it without all the suggestions and analysis from the members. I'm including pics, as I still don't know how to do a video upload (here or YouTube). The ONLY remaining issue is I can't seem to find any definitive videos, or strings on how to properly adjust the dual disc brakes - they'll stop the care (eventually) but not to my satisfaction. So.....if anyone has a link, or practical suggestions, I'm ready to complete this project. Again, thanks to everyone.

Uploading a video to YouTube is simple. Once you saved the video to your computer or phone, go to YouTube and in the upper right corner next to your name, click on it and hit upload video. It's easier to do on PC than phone. Especially to add the title to it as well as a few other miscellaneous things. Just make sure you have it set to either public or unlisted to make it so we can see it.

Once you have uploaded it to YouTube, grab the link from the address bar for that video and paste it to a reply on here.

For the brakes, they can be adjusted the same why that you adjust the tie rods on the front end. And I have the exact same kart as yours, except for the front wheels and the frame color (mines purple, don't laugh). It even has the same logo on the front bumper.
