TranStar Racing has announced three “Race” models, or ‘variants’, as follows:

  • Dagger GT-R will be our road racing model, with a dynamic, computer-managed split rear wing, set up to challenge and establish new lap records at Virginia International Raceway and at Nurburgring, Germany.
  • Dagger GT-LS will be our land-speed model with 500 mph rated M/T landspeed tires, front-end ballast, full bellypan with twin venturi tunnels, land-speed wheel covers, intake aero plugs, parachute, Bonneville rollcage and a range of other options to help our buyers set new landspeed records in excess of 300 mph. Options will include landspeed instrumentation/avionics packages, windshield options and other possibilities.
  • Dagger GT-D will be our drag racing model with Goodyear Pro Stock Slicks, hydraulic-launched double drag chutes, NHRA rollcage and a modified/changeable rear suspension that will enable 200 mph in the quarter mile for our friends who love to drag race.

TranStar Racing will continue to offer our Sport and Luxury street-legal models:
