Easter, Egg, Engines and...Bilsport Performance Show!! At Elmia! Come visit us!

Yes, it's time...time to stop sleeping. It's time to get inspired! Time to go to the Elmia fair, to the Bilsport Performance and Custom Show! Yes, it's in Jönköping, Sweden and it this weekend!

Our race car is not there. The Volvo Amazon land speed race car is in California, US, waiting for the next race. But we're at the show and we'll be showing videos and telling stories from our first landspeed racing experience until your ears are bleeding!

So be there and beware!!

We are ready to talk engines, turbos and superchargers and we'll be showing Borg Warner EFR and AirWerk turbos and Magnuson Superchargers, on engines, in cars and more...

...and we want to talk to YOU! 

Waiting for next stage in a high speed desert

Food, Beer and Nitro. A Magic Friday Night Get Together. Part 1.

A Magic Night? What's that?  Howling wolfs? Shooting stars? Unicorn? Psycadelic drugs? Demons?

No, that's all just fairytale nonsens.

So, no magic out there anymore? Has it all turned gloomy? Is the exitment all gone?  No, there's still a few places left, places where one can feel the vibrant past, taste the present and be ready for the future. Time and space for real magic, where it all comes together.

The Magic arrived to Ringön, Gothenburg on Friday evening the 23rd of March. Peter Gillbrand came over to the Salt Slush workshop with some of his fathers amazing engines. His farther? We're talking about Per Gillbrand, a Swedish motor legend and a show man who are not with us anymore.
Here's Peter, exited as can be, preparing epic engines before it all began. Pictured: A Model of Folke Mannerstedt Husqvarna V-Twin 500cc race engine and the mind blowing Offy Engine, an engine designed by Henry Miller & Fred Offenhauser in 1934. It dominated racing for at least 3 decades. If that ain't magic I don't know what is...
Again, before the party started. Before the magic arrived. Flathead candleholders are waiting for good things to happen.
Beauty in its purest form. Every part is hand made by the late Per Gillbrand. Almost paralyzing. 
Nitro is sometimes needed to get things going...and Roger is there to support.
We all kept cool with Kölsch, Jever, Pabst and garage cooked porter cooked prime rib, salt cooked potato. Yes, sallad was available.

To be continued...

The Movie #449 The Amazon Wagon

We have the honor to bring to YOU....

The True Story (so far) about 

The Salt Slush Racing #449 The Amazon Wagon

Wednesday the 21th of March we celebrated the European premier for our movie.

It had its US Premiere at Rod Riders Banquet by Erik Hanson place the 17th of March.

It may not be a blockbuster movie. It's more a kind of a movie by geeks for geeks.

On top of this, we've made it ourselves with Imovie.

Everything summed up under our Redneck Butchery signum.

You find it on YOUTUBE, just click on the link below or if you search for Salt Slush Racing.

Enjoy !

Big or small...

There are guys and girls who're only looking for a comfortable life. While others are trying hard to do what's never been done and win what's never been won. 
Ignore the quotes and let's focus instead. How about us? How about Salt Slush Racing? Are we doing deeds?  You'll be the judge...but keep in's The Year of the Engine.
Great or small doesn't matter as long as you got good things going. After some adjustments, the Suffolk Base engine and the Honda head got a new home made valve system. Felt better than good, almost great.
Anders soon-to-howl-out-loud 6 liter V8 iron LS engine got a new start up test bench today. 
You see what I mean? Big or small, we're trying to enjoy ourselves while we're waiting for spring, summer and eventually dried out lakebeds. 
We're keeping ourselves busy while waiting for Speed. Bonneville Speed Week is only some months away....

Spring is coming! There's Gasoline in the air...

We all dream about some kind of transformation. Always.
We don't know what kind of transformation, but deep in our heart we seek change.
This time of year most of us are waiting for the change from winter to spring, from idle and to full power if you know what I mean...
On our latitude, at this point in time, we're all suffering from the absence of sunlight and hence we're eating vitamins, drinking Bourbon and working hard in our workshop to keep fit. But still, we're looking forward to a change.
But there needs to be a spark to set the spring on fire. Like a big car show, like the Bilsport Performance and Custom Show this Eastern! And we'll be there to help out with the 2018 Performance Kick-Off.
We'll be showing Performance Cars, Boosted Engines, Superchargers, EFR & AirWerks and we like to meet you all out there! 
Anders is transforming a iron LS engine from mild to wild and he will be happy to tell you all about it at the show. 
Are you ready for the 10 hours in 2 min? Here's how to add another 120-250hp...makes a difference and be happy.
How does this part connect to spring and transformation? What is it? It's Carina's attempt to hot rod lawn mowing and she's got big plans... when snow is gone and the sun is shining there will be a loud and shiny Suffolks in the blistering sun tearing up the mosses.

For the love of Superchargers!

It's easy to promote things you like yourself and it's fair to say that the Salt Slush team really love Magnuson Supercharger. Not only does it transform your ride to something completely new...the supercharger looks fantastic as well. Just looking at this stuff make me feel fine. 
Maybe this short clip it lightens up your Friday as well....

Today, Sunday, it was time to use our best swenglish to describe the first 1500 hours in the workshop and the our El Mirage land speed experience.
Look, Listen, Talk. Topics of today.
Again, stay tuned.

Advanced Relaxing vs. Full Speed ahead before Bilsport Performanace Show....and Bonneville Salt Flats

The Salt Slush team frequently meet up to plan for the next step in our Landspeed Race dream. Right now we've all realized that we're getting closer and closer, day by day, to the next step. Which is real speed at The Salt. We'll be back in California beginning of May to do some wrenching and tuning in front of the real challenge. The Bonneville Speed Week in August 2018.
But right now we're proud to annonce that we'll be showing cool stuff at Bilsport Performance Show this Eastern and we're looking forward to see you all there!
But what's happing in our workshop? How do we relax? Here's how. We don't sleep. We don't do Yoga. We do stuff. We make things happen. That's how. Follow and you'll find yourself at ease.
Magnus soothe his soul with advance mechanic/mathematic moves.
Cina (and I ) are creating a monster. A previously non existing OHV Suffolk is coming alive(from the 60-ties) Why? Again, contemplation.
Today's focus: Ensure compression ratio north of 7. How? Nobody knows. Again, nobody. but we're working on it... 
Meanwhile, Anders is working hard with the engine management system that will control his new strong friend to be. The Magnuson equipped LS engine from hell, sorry, from Cadillac Escalade.
There's no substitute for...analysis (in order to later on get boost pressure and sense of freedom)
Think, Do, Act and keep dreaming.
Luckily there's a digital tool to support...
...and there's an engine waiting to be connected to new throttle.

Then there's Magnus and his packages with cool stuff. We love it. I bet he will build something based on what's in the box.
