second all said above.  used is good to get going.  The Birel AM29 is a great four cycle kart.  $1200 for a used package may be a pretty rough kart.   check it out closely.  I do tend to recommend a used chassis but a new engine.  That way you know where you are starting on the engine and to price difference is really not much between new and used on the engine.  I dont think it is worth the $200-$300 savings.  If you go to  Houston you can go by and see Alan Rudolph ar SpeedSportz racing park.  It is a super nice new facility with a driving school and a complete kart shop too.
