Top Doorslammer

It’s already 6 years ago since I made the first ever test pass with the Chevelle at Kjula Dragway! And it was a crazy good feeling after spending about 400 hours on it the three weeks before this first ever outing! That also means it’s over 10 years ago since I started this project, building this car and make a little boys dream come true and getting his own Doorslammer! 10 years, time flies, it really does!! It’s crazy!! And today we are hauling ass with it!! Thanks to all you that been helping out in some way during these 10 years!

Please check out the build of the Chevelle side, I do sometimes and daydreams! Fun times!! 🙂 


After the first pass, still remember that feeling! 😀


This really makes me smile, 6 years already!!? That’s just crazy! 😉


It’s been a lot of people involved during these 10 years, some of them I really miss… Some of them I don’t…

 

It felt good to end the year like this, won the round and made one more personal best to take with us home and be happy about over the winter! 0.079 on the tree, 0.95 to 60ft, 2.59@233km/h to 330 and 3.9031@307km/h to the finish line!!

 

Back home in the shop and the 2016 race season is over for real for Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing! 


Time to start work on the trailer again… But not right now! 😉


Only 8 months left until it’s time again! 

 


Heading home after four awesome runs at Tierp Arena! 4.12, 3.96, 3.95 and ended with a 3.90!!!! 


Packing up.


Going home!

 

It was A LOT of driving after half track, car was fishtailing and I was steering like crazy!!! I saw Dmitry to my left all the way so I just held it down like it was no tomorrow! 🙂 0.079 on the tree, 0.95 to 60ft, 2.59@233km/h to 330 and 3.9031@307km/h to the finish line!!!!!!  


It’s pretty common these days that people are bragging about others tuning there cars, so I felt that I needed to brag some also! 😉

But of course I would never got my car working like this without my really good friend Brandon Pesz as a tuning teacher! 


And there is more power in the motor but we need to wait to next year to find out how much….


Snapped of some studs and ripped out threads in the heads to the rocker arm stand on cylinder 2… And this happened at 2.9 seconds out, that explains the low speed…


Now lunch!

 

We are just about to warm up the motor, E2 in about 1-1.5 hours.

 

The Chevelle is serviced and I have done some changes to hot it up for the round tomorrow, track was way much better than what I expected in E1 so the changes I made for that round pretty much just compensated the track conditions from the first round today and made the car repeat the numbers from the first round today… Tomorrow we are up against Dmitry in E2 that have made a 3.97 as best so far this weekend and we are on a 3.95 but I think they have stepped it up for tomorrow so it will be really interesting to see how it turns out! 🙂

 
Ready for tomorrow, it will work good, or it won’t work at all but I want to try some new stuff! 


Dinner with family and friends, this is why I love the dragracing life! 🙂

 

New personal best with a 3,9518s!!!! And also a win in the first elimination round agains Åke that did leave a bit early from the line!


Was looking for a lower number but it did not work this time, gonna try some new stuff for tomorrow’s E2! 


Chevy power!!!


Time for a late lunch, and a really good one from Stockholm Gourmet! 🙂
