Im glad you have a keen interest in mechanics and kartbuilding. Its an 
excellent and fulfilling hobby.

Anyways, onto your question:
Mild Steel (plain carbon steel) is used throughout for building the 
Go-Kart. As for the DIN standard etc. the following webpage has some 
information on "Welded Steel Tube" which would be used on Go-Karts:
Actually, DIN 2458 is mentioned on that page. You will have to check this 
out yourself.

I hope you find this information useful. If you have any further questions 
etc. drop us an email.

Best of Luck,
