Ok, so we know we're talking the same language here, no pun intended Mate. grin
Just so you know ahead of time, the tapered panel Deist's are probably going to spin. That shouldn't be a big deal to you on a rundown from 200 to 250 ish, on a 3 to 400 car they will close up without a spinner mount.
You have two low speed options in a 14 & an 18, my suggestion would be to start with the 14 & see how "you" like it. If you want more hit, go up to the 18.
With an 18' tow line & 15' shroud lines you have 33' to the canopy, that'll work. Now your high speed tow line needs to be longer than that  to prevent tangle.
The high speed you have sounds like an odd little critter, 30" to single shroud lines with a 12" center panel.
When you deploy a low speed on top of a high speed, the low speed will kill the air to the high speed & it will stop flying. It tends to beat the $hit out of the high speed getting dragged on the salt so if you don't need to use both, don't. You're only required to have more than one chute beyond 300 & even then you can run it down on one unless you need to get it stopped in a hurry.
Hope this all helps.
  Sid.

More progress with the car over the past few months with the rear end mounted with 2 optional positions to give 1" variation in ride height.

EGT Probe for each cylinder!





I was reminded by our tech people that the tall breathers on the engine would be an issue should we fall upside down and dump the engine oil onto the salt so a new breather system was machined up to take the vent line to the rear of the car and down below the camshaft center line.

Is there a strap or something across the top to retain the cell? Nice build!

Thanks Sid, Some more shots of the fuel cell compartment.
I don't plan to fully enclose it but impede any engine fire from direct impact on the RCI fuel cell.
Front plate and base are .125" steel and the side plates from marine grade ally (the same thickness).
I will in addition to the required fire bottles have an extra 10lb auto activated unit with the head positioned just in front of the fuel cell area.

For some reason these latest pictures didn't come through even though all you've posted in the past have been just fine. All I see are those little red x's. Is it possible they were too large?  huh huh huh
