Default dragster

Go from pics and such and you can get different engines etc from diecast,The one I am working on now will be resin as soon as I finish the master-almost completed its a two part body kit the wing and engine etc are one and the front body is another.This one is made to fit the Mega G 1.7 chassis.

The TOMY Turbo chassis is very fast in a straight line, and has taller gearing than a SG+ .
I use them in my drag rails, with a vac formed body that clips on.
