This is a complex subject that was covered recently in another thread…which I will look for.

The “top teams” sell the karts after a weekend for a simple reason, that’s when used karts are worth the most.

All karts wear out over time.  TonyKarts are no exception.  The part that wears the most is the waist of the kart, from grinding on the track.  While there is no real evidence that flat spotting of the frame adversely affects the kart handing, it can be prevented by running skid plates.  Tonykarts may be more susceptible to this problem than some makes, as the frames flex a lot, which is part of what makes them good.

I’ll now hand this topic over to my son TJ, as he enjoys answering this one on a monthly basis.
