What is a Quarter Midget?
A Quarter Midget car is a scaled-down version of an actual midget racer, approximately 1/4 scale. The cars are built around a tubular frame and are fully suspended with springs or torsion bars and shocks. The bodies are sheet steel, usually painted and covered in graphics to the drivers preference. Surrounding the driver is a chrome-moly roll cage and nerf bars. The engines are single cylinder and are manufactured by Honda, DECO , & Briggs & Stratton. In the motors entry level configuration they produce between 2.5 & 4 horsepower. Modifications in the upper classes allow these engines to reach near 20 horse power. These air-cooled 4-cycle engines are reliable and can produce as much as 14,000 rpm's in their more highly modified forms!
