Eddie, love the driver instruction on the canopy.... nice run in the dirt.  :cheers:
I like hands on the wheel parachute release... but that thing drives nice enough to allow a little one handed control.

We were on duty at tower side  # 4  we marveled at the stability of the dust plume as you passed--you are disturbing very little more than your  frontal area---nice job you will soon have the fastest pass ever at El M   hope to be there to see it   :cheers:  :cheers: :cheers:

ON Sundays run I opened the parachute doors about halfway through the run.  That makes the dust cloud much bigger than when they are closed.  El Mirage dust is a great tuning tool.  Proves the effectiveness of those doors.  (on my car anyway)  a car with different aero may or may not benefit
