I’d be on the fence about the frame.  The price point is good considering its a 2013 kart, but that frame has been raced hard to get that amount of flat-spotting in a single season.  If it were me, that amount of flat spotting would bother me.  But again, a 2013 Tony Kart is going carry some value regardless.  In the end its up to you, But I think you can find an older kart in much better shape for the same – if not less money.  $2500 to $3000 can buy a nice used kart if you’re patient and look hard enough.

I’d also listen to guys about buying a kart serviced by your local track.  And also about buying one already set-up for the engine class you intend to run.
