Builds Turret-Type Midget Racing Car
BELIEVED to be the smallest electric-powered type in the world, a streamlined midget racing auto built by William Dube, of Worcester, Mass., is 31 inches high, 36 inches wide and six feet long. The novel car features a turret compartment for the driver and is said to be capable of a speed of 55 m.p.h. Four springs on each wheel provide knee-action riding.

    Let’s see…kid driving small electric vehicle with limited visibility at 55mph. What could go wrong?

    Are there any recent examples of electric midget racers (1980s,
    1990s)? I am particularly interested in the way they are suspended (unsprung weight).
