The innovative design of the new Chevy Midget racing engine is the product of imaginative thinking and advanced technology. The USAC Midget rulebook embraces a wide range of engines that includes four- and six-cylinder powerplants, two-valve and four-valve cylinder heads, and overhead-valve, single overhead cam, and dual overhead cam valvetrain designs. However, the Chevy Midget racing engine puts a new twist on a familiar theme. The opportunity to design an all-new Chevy Midget racing engine was an invitation for some of our best and brightest engineers to create an engine within the USAC guidelines that would be competitive in both performance and cost with existing engines. The inline four-cylinder aluminum block has dry iron cylinder liners, and the aluminum cylinder head has two valves per cylinder operated by pushrods and rocker arms. Maximum output is in excess of horsepower.

Posted 07 May - First time out, the car ran well with no problems. I wanted mainly to check oil press, oil temp, water temp, etc. Later I had a chance to take a few more laps so we put in a little more fuel and went out again. For some reason the engine really acted up.
The new engine will be available to all USAC competitors through independent engine builders. As this engine is brand new, the demand will initially outstrip supply until they become more available to the industry. The Chevy Racing engineering and marketing staffs have really embraced the TSR racing programs, and the debut of this new engine is the start of another exciting new chapter in our relationship.
Nothing like a real Halibrand Magnesium knockoff racing wheel! The lightest possible wheel. California law does not provied for a "cooling off" period for vehicle lease or purchase contracts.
