Hi guys. Brand new account and new to the scene. Looking to get some help with a sale listing to see if it's good value or not. Very sorry if I'm not posting in the right area.

Thanks in advance guys. Really excited to get started :)

Hi wazerp,

On the surface the price seems reasonable, however it will all be dependent on condition of the engine and chassis as these things are more difficult for a new starter to determine.

Since it's an arrow kart from Townsville, why not have a chat to your local kart shop as they may be the ones who first sold the kart and know a bit about it's maintenance history.  Try asking at Townsville Kart Centre, they may also have other 2nd hard karts to compare.

Additionally, I would recommend you visit the local kart club to get to know people first before committing - karters are generally very helpful to newcomers to the sport and can help point you in the right direction.

If you know enough details about the kart/owner, you could also review how often they raced on Speedhive.  This will also give you a good idea of how many people race locally in which kart classes.

Good luck in your research,


NB: It is unusual this is placed in general vehicles marketplace when there are other karting specific for-sale websites.
