“So what is a MiniCup anyway? Is it like a Bandolero or a go-kart?” I can’t say how many times I’ve been asked that question over the last four years. I usually respond with this canned answer while demonstrating the features and recounting some facts:

“No, it’s a ½ scale fully adjustable race car, with four corner coilovers, adjustable control arms, panhard bar, rack and pinion steering, and disc brakes powered by a Honda GX390 single cylinder engine mounted in the back. All the same stuff as a Late Model, just without the swaybars, and a lot less power, but it rolls through the corners as fast as the Late Models…yes, a 10 year old drives it…” more…
