My advise to “new to the sport” drivers is to get a good competitive complete kart. You’ll still have your work cut out for you (especially TAG) but you can learn as you go.

It looks easy on paper, but having all the correct parts installed is much easier than hunting down parts and pieces that you’re not 100% sure what it’s called.

It seems cheaper to build your own, but I am a firm believer it will be better to buy complete.

You should be able to get a complete kart from $2500 – $3500 that will be competitive. A newer 2013/2014 will be a but more, but not a bad idea either.

Good luck
