Rotary Powered Datsun Posts 8-second Quarter

April 9th, 2015

8-second Turbo DatsunTalk about your strange combinations; here we have a ‘70-ish Datsun B210 with an alcohol burning Mazda 13B rotary engine and massive Borg-Warner 75-millimeter turbocharger under the hood. Despite looking like your less than average old “beater”, this strange combination of Japanese antiques posts a personal best of 8.164-seconds @ 165.864 mph for the quarter-mile.

It is tubbed out to handle a set of 10.5-inch wide Strange Racing wheels (wrapped in racing slicks, of course) and shifting duties are left to a clutchless G-Force transmission.

You have gotta’ see this thing wiping the track with $100k Nissan GT-Rs during the TX2K15 in Houston, Texas.
