Originally one of Sydney's toughest NA rotors, 'STUTTA recently had a heart transplant and stepped up to a Series 8 13BBP Turbo. With the 13BPP Luke ran his little NA coupe to best of 11.1 but with the new combo and rebuild he is at a completely different level. To date the cars fastest ET is 8.71 @154 but there is certainly more left in the car to go even faster so keep your eye on this little beast.
Under the bonnet you can see this R100 is no show pony with all of the go-fast gear to get it down the quarter mile very quickly. The Pac-Spec Series 8 13BBPT is boosted by a Garrett GTX42R Turbocharger and regulated with a Turbosmart Power-Gate 60. The brain's of the operation is a Microtech LT16c which makes sure everything is running smoothly.
Up front making sure everything stays at the right temperature is one of our 4 inch intercooler's and an H/Duty alloy radiator.
With wheelie bars and a parachute on a street car you know it's something special.
The Weld Magnum wheels just seem to suit this gorgeous Candy Purple R100 so well.
The dash is a fabricated sheet metal unit filled with all the guages Luke needs to keep an eye on what's going on.
To help this beast stop we have fitted a set of twin piston calipers on 11.5 inch cross drilled and slotted discs.
Luke racing at the recent QLD Jamboree. He only had 2 runs before the rain set in with his first pass off the trailer being a 8.925 @151, this is certainly a very consistent car running in the 8's every time it hits the track.
'STUTTA' running 8.71 @154 pass recently at Sydney Dragway
