We just want to take the opportunity to wish all our customers, readers and followers:
A Happy New Year!
Let's make 2023 a better race, ride and wrench year!
Yesterday, on Christmas Eve, I was paralyzed. In shock. It all came back to me. My brain was overheated. Boiling. Overloaded.
Here's why; When I, way back in time, was a young kid trying to not get caught by the cops as I was speeding with my Zündapp thing were different. At least in Sweden.
Back in those days Sweden was governed by Socialist, or rather Social Democrats and they decided what was good for their citizens. The imperialistic Duck called Donald was not part of their culture agenda.
But the western world and democracy was pounding on our door and hence The Swedish National Television allowed Disney to appear on the screen for one hour on Christmas Eve. To show that The Party had an arms length distance to culture.
Since these dark years a lot has happened and Sweden is today a western democracy. But a tradition was established and since 1960 approximately 50% of all Swedes are looking at the same show every year. At this point you might again ask yourself why. Don't do that. It just gets complicated.
I was sitting there too. Looking at the same show for the 50th time. A bit bored. But then, all of a sudden...like a flash of lighting from a clear sky....
We've obviously all been born. For many of us the tentative teenage period has been forgotten and the first love is long gone too.
By now we look like grown ups and most of the time we behave maturely. But deep in our heart we wanna have fun. Enjoy ourselves.
This human development path applies as well to companies. Here's what;
Back in 2014, we had thi beer soaked barbecue party when we started to talk about Speed, Amazons (I'm here talking about the car) and an old School Speed Shop based on know-how.
Little did we know...
Meanwhile we knew a lot about engine boosting. Could we make use of that? A garage friend, Mario proposed to create a business based on boosting. And so we did. At this stage we were not walking. We were crawling. Technical wizards but stupid when it came down to speed shop, business and land speed racing. We were rookies learning how to walk.
Fast forward; I have been involved in many Supercharger or Turbo investigations. Useless beauty contests. Because is all depends on the application. At this same time, I got in contact with Magnuson Superchargers and we really liked what they could offer us. We immediately installed Magnuson Supercharger in my C6 Corvette and in Anders LS3 equipped El Camino. Pictured: Customer vehicle. With portfolio of superchargers and turbochargers and a bit of business experience we were up walking as a company.
But how to start running? Well, we had the ambition to expand our business and we began to think what other skills we had, which products and brands we liked and had experience of.Tremec Transmission was the answer. Why? Well we had already a transmission expert onboard (Kalle) and we already installed a Tremec Magnum 6 speed in our LandSpeed Amazon Racer and a Tremec TKO in Kalles Camaro and we liked what we have learned. Therefore we now have a deal with Silver Sport Transmissions, which means that we can offer a huge assortment of Tremec Transmissions and Mcleod Clutches.
The Boost pressure is high at Salt Slush Racing. We already have our eyes on the road and our hand upon the wheel.
But now is the time to push down the clutch and put in a higher gear.
I mean, that's what's needed if you want to gain serious speed.
Consequently, we can proudly announce, that we from now on will provide the Nordic and European market with:
Tremec TKX, 5 Speeds, 800Nm capacity and available with different gear sets. Kalle in the Salt Slush Racing Team has just installed a TKX in his Camaro and he's soo happy. Easy to shift, low revs on the Highway, sporty and comfortable.
