Hi Nam,

Thanks for your email. Im glad you find the kart plans useful. If you had 
access to the appropriate welding gear (mig welder with titanium wire) and 
cost wasn't an issue, and you wanted to build a super strong and light 
racing kart chassis - then yes it would be a realistic idea. If you were 
not very worried about strength (the ability of the kart to remain 
intact and working after a crash) then aluminum would be a good idea. It 
is very light and reasonably strong for normal use.

Best of Luck,
