Sorry about the slow reply. Sorry also for the not having done much work 
on the off-road kart plans. I had hoped to get around to redoing the 
existing kart plans which are in 2D in 3D. Most of the information is 
already available on this kart at: 
http://kartbuilding.net/Freeplans/plans.htm and 

As for the Tony Kart, that would take a bit of time to make out plans for 
that kart. There are plans for a racing kart at: 
I know its different, but it should give you some useful information.

To answer your question:
You will want to choose "metal tubing" for the chassis. There is a very 
interesting article at 
http://www.millerwelds.com/education/articles/articles70.html on making 
the chassis of a motorcycle.
Typically I use "Black Steel Pipe" as its cheap and easy to work with. 
See: http://www.answers.com/topic/black-steel-pipe-1  and 

If you have any more questions, just ask.

Best of luck,
