History - Dwarf cars are 5/8 scale replica models of vintage 1928-1948 American made automobiles.  They have full steel roll cages; sheet metal bodies, and are powered by 4 cylinder motorcycle engines up to 1250cc.  Most cars today are powered by 1000 cc. fuel-injected engines by Suzuki, Kawasaki, Honda, or Yamaha. The sound of 4 cylinders at 11,000 rpm is tremendous. The weight to horsepower ratio is even greater than a full size late model stock car. They have full racing suspension and are capable of speeds over 100 mph on the straight-aways. 

Dwarf cars started as a hobby during the 1980's in Phoenix, with the original idea of providing economical racing to people who were just starting out or who could no longer afford to keep up with the escalating costs of full size classes.  The hobby has grown quickly to become the hottest class in auto racing today. 

Dwarf cars are "real" race cars, not family go-karts.  With modern design suspension, Dwarf cars are achieving speeds similar to the fastest full size cars.
