New race ready mini sprints can be purchased for $10,500 and up, depending on the vendor and options. Several vendors (shown below) are available and we recommend you shop around before making the final selection. Performance will also depend on driver capability, power plant, and set-up.
All of these car builders provide assistance with car set-up. Some have very sophisticated and helpful technical data. You may want to consider ordering a set-up video and book from Stevie Smith Racing PO Box 11631, San Ana, CA 92711 714-639-7681 steviesmithautosports.com
A Mini Sprint chassis has a long life span. There are a number of drivers in our club that are very competitive in a chassis dating back to the late 90's. Competitive used racecars can be purchased from $4000 and up. Most sales include extras such as tires, wheels, gears, and other accessories. Everything is pretty basic with our cars. You can run the same bars and shocks at about all the racetracks and you don't need a ton of spares.
