Hi Phil,

I don't know the exact tubing material used in that Tony kart. I would 
estimate that it is Diameter 30mm tubing with a wall thickness of 2mm 
(i.e. a larger diameter tubing with a smaller wall thickness to reduce the 
weight significantly.)

As for their camber and castor angles, you can download the 3d model of 
the Tony kart from:
You can use the eDrawing viewer to measure the Camber and castor angles 

I suggest you look at the following article which discusses FIA kart 
drawings and specifications. Angles and dimensions are listed in the 
document on this page:

Best of luck,
