13B turbo Datsun street Ute

In Drag, Video by fullboost

We spotted Matty Lud’s street driven Datsun 1200 competing at the Australian Nationals at Calder Park.

The Datsun is powered by a Promaz 13B bridge port rotary engine and garrett turbocharger with power shifting through a modified Mazda gearbox. The Ute had run a best of nine forty so Matt was looking to improve on that.
