Hi Trent,

The engine I used for the Wooden Kart was off a push mower.
On the following page:
V-Pulleys are used. V-Belts and pulleys are used so that the drive belt 
will not slip off as it is rotating through 90 degrees. As long as the 
v-belt is kept tensioned/tight, it will not come off.

I hope the above explaination helps.

Best of luck,
