Tracked golf cart!!! Empty

Hey guys and gals. I haven't been on here in a while but recently started a new build. I picked up an old Yamaha g1 golf cart and decided it desperately needs some tracks. So I go to looking up PistenBullies and looked at how they are run as far as the drive sprocket and road wheels. I'm using 16" solid rubber road wheels (3) per side with the front one adjustable. The rear shocks were taken out and I ridged mounted the rear end as if it had a lift kit so I could gain clearance for the tracks. I'm making my own tracks out of conveyor belt and hardwood as grousers like they did in the old days. The drive spro├žket will be made of that high density plastic nylon stuff (sorry can't think of the real name). I'm having a hard time making them perfect. The grousers are 1 7/32 inch square and spaced out 2.5" from the others (not center to center). I've cut out a template which is roughly 10 5/8 with 9 teeth. it goes good on the track I've already made but it's not perfect. I can't find anyone that can help me draw it on cad. So I've also taken all the body off. So it's just a bare chassis with rear end. The undercarriage
is made of 1.25x 1.25 square tube and welded to the bottom side of the golf cart chassis. I'm going to be separating the cab from engine compartment that way the cab doesn't have to come off to get at the engine. Ide like this to come out as a mini PistenBully. That's the plan anyways. Not sure if the stock rear end will work. Ide like to use zero turn wheel motors but don't think they will handle the stress. I will upload the pics of it so far once I get on my computer

Sounds like a cool idea. Tracked stuff is neat, just a bit of a pain to make it work. If you have a good system it should be ok though. I think the stock rear end could possible work with steering brakes if it was a slow speed thing. If you had a lot of power and were really tearing on it then it may not hold up. They're fairly rugged though.
