It could hurt the engine if its wrapped out to long. So try not to hold it WOT. Other than that, dial all your droop out and it should be good.

Man, a go-kart track... that would be a blast!

the only thing you will wreck is your tires.

I drive my car on the pavement all the time and it chews the hell outta the tires. I rolled the car a few times and my engine head is all scratched, but thats about all.
