Sorry I did not see this mod earlier ... but if you are going away from standard, throw the V belt in the bin and instead run a toothed belt. You can get alloy pulleys and you don't have to run the belt as tight, saving hp and weight.

Did this to my last club car. V belts are for concours not racing .

ps: serious weight saving is often done by counter boring the ends of all bolts as that part does nothing, or drilling holes through large bolts ... lots of machining for you .
