here's a video of one of our dirt track assoc drivers racing a dwarf car when the driveshaft came apart and tore up the transmission at 12k rpm :smt103:smt103

starts getting interesting at the 3:15 minute mark on the video

I'd love to give that a try!

they're alot of fun to race and we've got drivers that are 6'5" and they fit very easily into the cars .we've raced on 1/2 mile dirt tracks with speeds well over 100mph entering the corners and at 3/8th mile tracks we see lap times in the mid 16 second times . these little cars have all the handling characteristics of a non winged 360 sprint car with lap times almost a second slower than the sprint cars and carry the l/front wheel almost the entire straight before setting it down in the corners :yawinkle::yawinkle:

Man that looks fun... What type of engine? Sounds like a motorcycle.

yep motorcycle engines no bigger than 1250cc displacement and alot of teams will make stroker motors like taking a GSXR 1000 up to 1180cc's .depending on track conditions and rear gear selection most will stay in 2nd gear or 3rd gear banging the rev limiters .we used to run a wild small displacement yamaha R1 up to 14,400rpm and that little motor was awesome !!!!
