Quick question for you all.

I'm starting to plan out the rear brake setup on the kart. The original Yerfdog frame came with a single drum brake on the axle. I'd like to ditch that because, well, its not going to stop this thing.

I've been looking around at some used motorcycle/atv rear calipers and have come across a lot of replacement calipers on Ebay. At around $25-30 I'm worried about the quality. I'm not looking to spend hundreds of dollars because we already have front brakes. Just need a little more stopping power in the rear. Any thoughts/recommendations?

Thank you all for your help!
