Welcome to ÅBM Racing

Top Doorslammer

Just one more eight mile!

We won elimination round 1 and made one more Finnish Top Doorslammer record with 3.884, pretty ok 60ft and better 330 but we are still missing power because the speed is so low!..

Well we won, on to E2 in a bit!

Car looks just fine after some service!

The Snake makes the Chevelle look great! 😀

 

It’s one more awesome day today here at Kauhava! 🙂 It’s a bit cooler but still around 20 degrees Celsius, we are called out for the first elimination round at 10:30!

Wish us luck, stay tuned!

 

We took the Finnish Top Doorslammer record round today on our last round with a 3.905 but once again a SLOOOOW speed of 295.71km/h!… Earlier record was 3.917 (the exact numbers we made in the pass before!) And that was held by our good friend Lenn Lindell that he made back in September in 2019! Best part is that it still belongs to a Swede, and I have built both cars! 😀

Awesome!

But what a messy round!.. Made the burn out, I then see that all the warning lamps on the Racepak dash are lighten up and nothing works on it, I start to look that the oil pressure lamp is dark, I’m checking that I still have air in the bottle by testing the trans brake, all seams good! But when I’m backing up to the starting line the transmission starts to throw out the reverse!… It is really noisy, it is really hard to try to get it into gear!… But I succeeded I was thinking that I at least have some kind of oil pressure so let’s do this! 😉 Makes the pass and it feels really good and it ends up good except that I got some oil under the transmission! Well we found the problem and it’s now fixed again!

Max and Sofi are happy! 😀

But I’m missing power in my motor and I really don’t know where it went!… Can’t find it! Well after all a really good weekend so far and tomorrow it’s race day and time for eliminations so I won’t try anything crazy, just want to go rounds! Hope the weather continues as good as it have been the last couple of days!

We did stay on the top all weekend as the number one qualifier, low ET and top speed for the event in Top Doorslammer!

Here is the ladder for tomorrow!

I want to say a huge thanks to the FHRA crew have done a crazy good work with the track, and everyone is so friendly! Thanks to everyone here at the track! ❤️

We did get some dinner today also! 😉 Thanks to ICA Gärdet!

Dad and Krille have serviced the motor!

We finally got some rain after a couple of crazy hot and sunny days here at Kauhava!

Preparations for tomorrow are done!

Max did help Krille out, or something! 😉

But the clock is now again in the middle of the night so it’s time to sleep!

Elimination round 1 is around 10:00 tomorrow Finnish time, stay tuned!

 

Better with a 3.917 but still low in speed with 300.25km/h

Soon one more round! 🙂

 

Was strapped in and ready for next round but there is a clean up from the pair in front of us so I’m out again!

Stay tuned!

 

I found something that I wanted to try yesterday and it kind of worked! 🙂

Went down with a little better 3.936 with a slow 298km/h! Why the speed is slow is because the car moves around pretty much after 330ft (half track) It needs some driving and I got a lateral G from plus 1 G to minus 1 G!

But I’m on to something, but really slowly! 😉 Better go down the track getting data and runs instead of shake around or blow the tires on the starting line!

Dad and Krille are getting the motor some love!

John the Snake makes the Chevelle look good!

There is some rain on the forecast for today!… Hope the forecast is wrong because then we will have 2 more runs today and test some more stuff! 😉

 

It’s Saturday and we still got a warm and sunny weather! 🙂

We will go out on our first for today and total the seventh qualifying round at 11 about 1 hour from now!

Then I assume it will be 14 and last at 17 Finnish time!

We just got some awesome breakfast thanks to ICA Gärdet! 🙂

She is ready! 😀

Here is some Finnish supporters from yesterday that bought some of our very last old shirts! 🙂

Stay tuned!

 

Q6 was everything but a good round!…. Due to some mess up when it was time to start the car, no water when it was time for the burn out so the tires got stuck totally! Backed up and gave it some more throttle and made the burn out, then I had a hard time to see the three!… And it took longer time than what I assumed for Jari to go into stage so I was standing a long time on the 2-step and the engine rpm went down so I released the button and then Jari was in stage so the pass started really bad and then I had the chutes out way early and we did not have third gear!…

After all we made a 3,96 @ 302km/h anyway!… There is room for improvement here for sure! 😉

BUT! The only good thing about the pass is that I found out that left lane is just as good as the right, so a really good job by the FHRA crew here at Kauhava! 😀

It’s time for a transmission change for some better numbers!

And service of it!

Giving the motor some love!

And Sofi is fixing something to eat thanks to our awesome partner ICA Gärdet! 😀
