Welcome to the official page for the MagDragster car [MD-Golf01] The first car that can be driven on 3 different model car racing systems. The car can drive as a Mag Car, Slot Car & RC Car. 3 in 1 chassis. The car is made for the Tamiya Golf Mk1 Racing Group 2 body. The car can use a brushed 130 motor or a brushless 2030 motor.
I always wanted to design and build a 1/24 scale car with a chassis that looks like a real race car chassis, a tube chassis with a roll cage.
My inspiration for making a chassis for the Golf Mk1, comes from various places, but one car that I never forgot was the Rotor Rabbit drag car by Thomas Palubitzki that later was sold an became the Wolf Wankel. (see picture)
