    Hey guys,

    we are considering importing some of these little rigs. I have had a few calls here and there in regards to them and people wanting them. Does anybody know much about them or how useful they would actually be here in the States?
  2. Hey Steve,

    I picked up one at auction awhile back and it's still in Japan, They're more of a novelty than useful vehicle that's why I haven't bought any others.

    The Daihatsu Midget II - is a 660cc rear wheel drive.It has a 4 speed manual gearbox coupled by a propshaft to a rear axle mounted on springs to aid weight carrying capacity (APPROX 200 kg).I think it has some real good features and you would find it good for your cause.

    My rev counter is for a four pot but it works out to be about 5,500rpm with my current rear wheel diameter.
    Hope that helps.
