First and for most of like to thank you all for the advice and pointers. You guys have all been so helpful with my build.
Now... On the $0 budget noma buggy build. I have a 5in front a 5in rear pulley, foot throttle beside the clutch. Where should I put the brake. Was thinking on the left side but I've heard it would be hard to control due to no suspension lol

I would think putting a single brake on one axle with an open differential would make it act funny when braking at high speed because you're essentially only stopping one wheel. What about rigging up a nice brake handle and attach it to the stock brakes? If you get enough leverage on the stock brakes they might work pretty good.

I was gonna use a similar design as my throttle. But I've heard it would be tough to use at high speed the chart I found says roughly 21.50 mph Brake placement?  15277110

Release the gas pedal, hit the clutch, and shift.

I used serpentine belts off a car for brakes on my machine. Seem to work ok and they don't wear as fast as you'd expect. But also you can get cheap brake stuff for go karts on bmikarts.com

Probably some other sites are good too. There's small disk brake setups or bands. You can go on the axle or you can go on the input shaft of the transmission too if you want to go that route. Only thing there is that if the transmission has an issue or it's in neutral, you won't have brakes. Safety wise the best place is the axle.

Brakes only on one wheel with an open diff... would the wheel without the brake spin and turn the input shaft? In that case I guess the one with the brake would be stopped or locked up, the other side only having the drag of moving the gears in the trans? I think....

For moderate speeds I guess a brake on one wheel would work. For higher speeds a locked rear would be nice, or else two separate brakes on each wheel.

Here's my brakes on a 633 transaxle with cast iron hubs. Not the same as new style transmissions but it's an idea.
