The bake off temp of 850 is what would make me nervous.  I know I’ve owned karts before that are heat treated in different ways, to achieve certain results.  I’m not a metallurgist, but that would concern me.

I use aircraft stripper on chassis and then sandblast the hard to reach areas.  Powder coating itself is only around 450F, and obviously the karts were all powdered at one time, so that part doesn’t bother me.  That super high temp of 850 is what they use to bake off the residue left on the hanging hooks, I just wouldn’t do it to a kart, but that’s me.
