This series has become the premier non-winged sprint car series on the west coast of the United States. The Silver Crown series was started in as an offshoot of the series that competed for the National Championship Trail including the Indianapolis , known as "big cars". Today, they are essentially the same car as a winged sprint car, only without wings. In fact, many of them have the "stub outs" in the frame for adding wings. They use the same ci and ci aluminum engines as their winged counterparts although many local tracks have rules mandating steel blocks and some ci displacements, this is mostly a cost control. Their tuning and gearing are different for performance at lower RPMs than a winged car.

Mini sprint cars resemble the shape of a full-size sprint car and the size of a midget car. The mini-sprint shares overall dimensions that are similar if not identical to a full-size midget. In fact many competitors are actually making use of old midget chassis. Mini-sprints are exclusively front-engined cars that have their engines located near the middle of the chassis. Mini-sprints also share suspensions that are identical to sprints and midgets. The most popular chassis is the four bar.

Build Your Own Sprint Race Car Knowledge Level Due to the scratch-built nature of sprint cars, you should be knowledgeable in handling, chassis , suspension, powertrain, aerodynamic and safety design. These six major areas of the car design work as an integrated unit and the designer must have an understanding of how changes to one area affect the others. Much of the design work is iterative, meaning re-designing areas based on new changes to another area. After the iterations are completed, the design will be complete and optimized.
Gives lots of room for the driver compared with others that I tried. Dave O'Neill2 Thank you very much for the picture - nice car. Which Sparco is it?
