cool idea, a go kart like that with a 5 speed and 12 hp engine should be great fun. I'd put a centrifugal clutch on the engine and run a chain to the gearbox. I can't see why it wouldn't work and it would stop any chance of the belt slipping.

Chain and a Exclamation GOOD Exclamation centrifugal clutch and it will work fine.

Don't forget clutch and chain need to be maintained.

With a chain you will need a clutch.
If you are going for cheep use a belt drive.
