1. Without transbrake. See what all the other stuff have made to it? 9.73? 11...?
2. With transbrake 4000 RPM. Check out a completely new way of starting. 9.50?
3. With transbrake 5500 RPM. Holy shiat! 9.40?
4. With transbrake 5700 RPM. Gulp. 9.35!!!
In here in between I may to have to take a passenger from the press, if so it will be without transbrake...
11.44 with Transbrake AND Mr Tog aboard...
Also I'm challenged by Mr Tog of Eurodragster.com who will borrow the 9.7 second "Grumpy's Dodge" from paul Marston racing to beat me. Ha! Ze Yellow Dodge not ready after earlier engine brakeage...
If so I will use transbrake and all my overtake things. Don't worry!
Hopefully, Patrick Wikström and me also will end the day with a garage showdown. A 2007 TBDGIT Championship!
We have asked and it doesn't seem too impossible but we don't know for sure yet. It was gonna happen!
It will be on a Sportsman tree. If Patrick has gone 6.20 so far and Blackout 9.30 it will be a 3.10 handicap for me.
Yes, I will use the transbrake. Yes, I will stall it at 6100 RPM, 100 RPM under shifting point... Zz zzz Zz zz...
At least I will do as long and smoky burnout as Patrick... Well, neither one of us had the time to play on this...
The day ends with the scrutineering for Pro ET. And one beer that I will find. Yes, I found a beer...

1st round of Elimination Did it and won
2nd round of Eliminations Did it and redlighted!
9 Sunday. The rest of the Elimination rounds. The Party. Where will we place this trophy? In your big mouth perhaps? 10 Monday. We leave early for London and a couple of days in London. Family. That worked very fine!
Thursday. What shall we do on the ferry during the following days? Skitgubbe? Sandwich? Beer? TV? I can read
my timeslips again! Yes! And polish the trophy again. Or hanging on to your life on a rocking ferry from hell...?
