MagDragster Golf Mk1 [MD-Golf01]


This page is under construction.


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)

Where to buy

The chassis is for sale on Shapeways. The chassis have only been tested in the Strong & Flexible Polished materials.
