Still not sure on the sizes you are referring too ๐Ÿ˜‹. For example we currently run a 112 link chain with a 12 tooth front sprocket and a 88 rear sprocket.

Welcome to the forum btw ๐Ÿ˜

No. The pitch (distance between roller centres) is different.
35 chain is 3/8 inch pitch (9.517 mm.) T8F is 8.000mm pitch.
Neither are used on racing karts in UK. Almost all use 219 chain with 7.774mm !!! pitch.
They use some 35 chain in US.but not been used on racing karts in UK for 40 years.
