Dragster
Last week we wrote you about Salvinos JR Models and this week we are still in the US to talk about some curious racing machines, plenty of horsepower, blowers of flames and smoke, that roar prodigiously and look absolutely spectacular. We are talking about the dragsters.

All of us who have been lucky enough to see them race, touch them, smell them, and listen to them, feel a chill from the very spinal cord when we remember it, because there is simply nothing like that. Hairs on end, man!!!

Here in Europe we've hardly had the chance to see these machines in action, but we can do one thing: build dragster scale models. Many of you have asked to have the option of getting the best dragster models at SpotModel, so we have started the machinery and brought you, this time by the hand of MPC, some of the dragsters of the seasoned Don 'Snake' Prudhomme and Tom 'Mongoose' McEwen.

If you want to enjoy the assembly of something different, don't keep looking any further: put a dragster in your SpotModel shopping cart and... go nuts!!!

Is your shelf sturdy enough for more than 10.000 horsepower? :-)
