The Classic Dragster (known as 'a Nostalgia 1' in Europe and Australia) is a kart in Mario Kart Wii.


The Classic Dragster is for medium weighted characters and is unlocked from the start.


The Classic Dragster is relatively slow, but has very good acceleration. This makes it a good kart for players that always crash into walls or are always targeted by objects. This kart is also good for its off-road and its handling stats. The handling is the best for a medium kart. It has a good drift too.


The Classic Dragster has a huge weakness though: its weight. The Classic Dragster is lighter than many other karts, so it is often pushed around by heavier karts.


Yoshi and Diddy Kong use a Classic Dragster for Dry Dry Ruins (Nin*Kei) and Maple Treeway (Nin*pico).
