only if you want to cringe when you see the photos---I have been in a car that the chute kited and lifted the rear and pulled it side ways  was fortunate to  "steer into the slide" and stayed in front of it

Among the reasons are tether length, mounting point, type of chute (ribbon, tri-form or cross-form) and how the air comes off the car.  I'm sure there are others, but that is a good start for a list.
