one of the main reason I mount a camera pointing to the rear is because of my experience--SS #1  pretty well nailed the cause

3 things can INFLUENCE it---notice I didn't say stop it

change how far it is behind the car---longer is usually better but not always

chute change

change the way air comes off the car  by body design or air mod. devices

I believe "X " form chutes fly lower than round ribbons.
Bigger diameter chutes fly higher than small. I suspect it has something to do with the boundary layer between the chute and ground.

Rob,
  You might check with Porkpie;
he has no doubt witnessed hundreds, if not thousands of "chutes popping", since he shoots many shots from the best vantage point available.

He might have your answer on the top of his head.

540 ci BBC AA engine well under way. Dart big M w billet caps is here. Diamond pistons. Callie's crank, Oliver Rods and calico bearing should be here within the next couple of days. Jesel lifters, rocker system, belt drive also ordered. Cam is here. BMF heads w BeCu seats and steel guides inconel  ex and Ti int valves also ordered.
We have built this combo before and we have a good tune for it. HP should not be an issue for us at Speedweek. Engine should be ready to go for USAFRA test session.

Rob, while you are slowly running increased speeds you should be popping the chute to see how it flies.
Contact Pork Pie about taking chute pictures and helping with solutions if you have any issues.
X-forms and Tri-forms seem to be less particular than round ribbons... YMMV

88mm turbos are here!
We can remount the intercooler and start the install on these puppies early this week.
I've bought these for customers before but never for us. We are getting exited now!
Also, all our Jesel stuff came on last week! Feels like Christmas!
