Welcome to ÅBM Racing

Top Doorslammer

Today is race day, we are up against our Swedish buddies in Kunc Pro Mod with Peter behind the wheel in E1!

We are ready to warm up the engine, but we need to wait 30 minutes due to we can’t make noise before 09:00.

The ladder for today! Wish us luck!

 

From what I have heard and understand the qualifying for the FIA classes are cancelled due to the rain!

That really sucks because we REALLY needed that one to continue to figure out the car!…

Well, it is what it is and tomorrow we have race day!

Car is done ready for it, when it comes to the tuning I now have a whole night to overthink and to mess things up!… 😉

 

Did some pedaling just to get some better numbers for the qualifying, and also to be able to feel some in the car when shifting gears and pull the chutes!

The weather does not look so great right now and it’s getting colder and more windy!

But it might change and they did just call us to roll up in about 90 minutes!

Stay tuned!

 

 

We are going out for the next round in about 30 minutes!

 

It’s been raining during the night and the crew are out with the jet dryer to get some heat in the track!

We have been told that they will come by 1 hour before it’s time for us, they of course want to make sure that the track is safe for us!

This was today’s schedule from the beginning, I’m pretty sure it will be some changes to it because of the weather forecast!

 

I have been looking to get more wheel speed since we got here!…. During Doorslammers and the testing I have added ratio in the transmission and more and more power!.. We were still low when it comes to wheel speed both at Doorslammers and in testing but the car went down!

Then we put on new slicks yesterday, and now I’m lost instead!…

At least I went past the 60ft in Q2 compared to the wasted Q1 today!..

0.9713 to the 60ft and I was off the throttle at 1.7 seconds! Because of too much wheel speed!… So, now we need to go back and build the transmissions we had earlier to slow it down a bit! Because it wasn’t enough with just take away timing, it did not make the car happy enough!..

After the round we found a broken valve spring, that might have caused a power loss that messed up things…. But it does not look like that when looking at the Racepak data!

Now it’s time for flip flops and a beer in the sun to heal my sore back! 🙂

Stay tuned!
