    Hey guys

    Just picked up a kart and need some help.. the ID tag behind the seat is gone. From what I’ve gathered it’s one of Tony Kart’s offshoot brands- I just can’t pinpoint which one, so any help would be greatly appreciated. The frame is blue with gold tie rods and OTK master cylinder. Front & rear brakes with TK marked discs. TK pedals and steering wheel. Fireball 125..

    It depends, theres two blue OTK chassis, the darker blue/purple of the Kosmic and the lighter blue of the FA. This chassis is an FA from the powdercoat, but the lack of other OTK components is a little strange… The tie rods are OTK, but I’d have expected it to carry OTK bodywork, and the seat. Definitetly interesting to see, granted I’m not the expert of karts by any means. What do you plan on doing with it?

    Steve. This is an early Tony Kart model ( pre 08 or 09) Maybe even older, as the side pod nerf bars go towards the front rather than on the side, it also has a welded tab at the end of the inside  frame rail at the back.

    Overall I think it may be a 2002 to 2008 Tony Kart Mitox, and somebody powder coated it blue, as there were no Alonso karts or Kosmic Karts back then.

    Anyhow, I hope this helps, and good luck with your plans. FastFreddy.  .)

    Its a Tonykart Mitox 2000-2002, powder coated blue. You can tell it is pre-2003 due to the old style sidepod mounting bars configuration (angled rather then straight).

    Back then FA kart didn’t exist but Kosmic has been around since the 90s’.

    Looks to be mainly authentic components, with extended front for tall drivers. Back then tonykart ran tillet seats.

    2000-02? The markings on the Fireball motor are US 2118

    11.06- so the motor is an 06? I’m obviously not sure of the motor numbers either.. thank you both for your help.. so you both agree on year /model?

    Aaron- I’m actually trying to trade it for a Banshee.. or ATC250R / Fourtrax.. We’ll see how it goes!

    Engines and karts are interchangeable. You could theoretically put a 2016 motor on a 2001.
    Sorry I don’t know much about the PRD fireball, but I had a Mitox in 2001 and 2002.

    Ok.. now that we’ve solved that riddle- anyone know what it’s worth? I know the Fireball motor goes for around $1500..

    Anyone? Bueller??

    Brand new Fireball engine packages are around $1500, they are a very reasonably priced TaG package. Used ones on here typically bring around $500-$600.

    Complete package at most would be around $750- $1000 due to the age of both.
