I just picked up this unit on sale for a few odd jobs around our house.
Carry-On Trailer® 5 ft. W x 8 ft. L Specialty Single Axle Trailer, 1,625 lb. Payload Capacity - Tractor Supply Online Store

I think attaching to the rear is a bad idea for all the reasons stated. The only rear mount that would make any sense since it has it's own support is this one:

SWIVELWHEEL-58

I have pulled both a 5 X 8 trailer and a 6.5 X 10 trailer behind my Blue Ridge 5er. I don't have a rear view camera, but I can see the edges of the 6.5 trailer with my truck mirrors so I never use the 5 ft. trailer any more. If you don't have a camera system you might consider the wider trailer for that reason. I also use the TST tire pressure monitoring system on the towed trailer for peace of mind. I have towed a golf cart, Polaris Ranger, and Harley bike with this setup with no problems.

Has the TST warned you of any inflation problems?

What's top speed on your souled up cart?
Was engine easy to replace?

I have not had to use the TST warning system while on the road, but I have the low pressure set pretty low, and on cooler mornings the system will set the alarm off until I start traveling and heat the tires to above the lower setting. So I know it works.

53mph when it was set up to drag race. Now it's committed to trail riding and the top end is about 42-43 mph.
There's a guy in Georgia that makes entire kits (including the engine) for converting Club Car, EZ Go, and Yamaha carts. You could do it in an afternoon with one of his kits. I had the Honda motor and wanted to use what I had. So, I bought some parts from him to make it easier. Took me about 12 hours total to do the swap.

the guy in Georgia is Cart Parts Plus, Engine Upgrade Kits

If you are going off road, the big block kits are the way to go.
