  1. I never heard of this! Sounds like a fun hobby! Where's my helmet?

    Initial Investment:

    Race car: less paint on body, decals and lead weight $8995.00

    2-way radio system (if you do not already have one) $949.00

    AMB Scoring Transponder system $335.00
  2. Joe Gibbs just bought into it and is setting up something in Charlotte.

    I don't see how they can go 100 MPH though, not with a 16 HP engine, which is what I believe they say the cars have. That would give them 1/10th the power to weight ratio of a Cup car.
  3. Yeah, I raised my eyebrow at that myself. I believe it said they were "capable" of hitting 100mph. I wonder what sort of speed they actually race at.
  4. Maybe they can hit 100 if they are on the trailer and you have a fast tow truck. LOL.

    Put a 650 motorcycle engine in one of those and they would be a total blur. Actually they would be a USAC midget with a body. Even a 500 single would be cool. But then the cost would be probably two or three times higher.
