Default Split Sprocket to Disc Hub Adapter?

Wondering if anyone out there makes an adapter for a go kart style split sprocket to be able to bolt to a disc hub. Found multiple adapters but not this combo.

Not that I know of, however there are much larger sprockets available, in a number of useable bolt patterns. You might poke aroubd in the advertising section, I believe at least one member here custom cuts sprockets, and can go as large as 88t. My advice, if you need that much gear reduction, would be to use a jackshaft.

Not necessarily looking for larger sprockets, thinking more of the lower cost and ease of changing gearing (not having to remove the wheel and whatnot to change it out). I have a project that I'm gonna have to do some experimenting with gearing and this would make it a lot easier and cheaper.

I saw an older thread of Pats of some they were making but if I remember correctly they were specifically for the split sprockets they make, different from the go kart sprockets. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I do like the idea of easy gear swapping, but I'm concerned with strength. Im sure if Pat sells one though, it's good quality, and expensive. Very expensive.

I don't think strength would be much of a concern when you think about the motors they run on go karts with these sprockets

I guess my next question, since there doesn't seem to be this adapter out there, would be is there any interest in these if I was able to get them made?
I feel like this is something that the guys that race might find useful.

Pat makes one already and I am using one on my current build, the picture shows it. I think his price is fair for the quality and engineering.

Picture shows adapter and sprocket on a special disk hub, bullet proof setup...
