Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

  Interested in your chute info.  Brand? Size? Air or spring?  Looking to buy one soon.  Couldn't find that info in your build diary.  Saw you at Loring but too busy to notice everything.

My Chute is a Stroud LSR Chute.   Call Bob Stroud and give him the details (car type, weight and speed)  He will size the chute to fit your application.  ( I ordered mine through Joe Timney at Delaware Chassis Works).

Mine is designed for a 4500 lb car at 225 mph to stop in .9 of a mile (for Maxton and Loring) if a chute works there it has to be ok for the longer shutdowns at B'ville.

Yes,  the pics and video from Loring seem to show the D Bag and deployment from a better angle.

I dont think I have ever seen a better sequence that supports what is stressed at the rookie orientation. "Drop the chute at the line." You definitely drive away from it ... looks like you were right on the money ... Joe

Joe,  the key is knowing your car and chute.  On my setup, if I pull the chute as I enter the first trap, it is to soon.  In these pics I pulled the chute as I (the drivers door) passes the first timing cone, this allows the chute to "drop" before the car gets to the finish traps (but does not slow the car)  as the car powers past the finish then chute will then fully deploy.  What we see here is what I should do all the time.

At Loring, I was going faster and pulled the chute sooner,, It slowed me down before the lights.  Going faster also means you drive away from the chute faster,, so I should use the same exact procedure all the time. Pull the chute as the door passes the first traps.

Here is the video from Loring. I was going 180 mph when I pulled the chute. If you go full screen you can see the first cones in the lower right, and you will see the chute drop out just prior to me entering the cones, you can see at that speed the chute depolys rather fast even though it has long lines. The chute fully blossomed and slowd the car before it got to the final timing line (this slowed the car from 180 mph to 175.250) So now I wait to pull the chute till I pass the first timing cones.

Double click the pic


Hope you and all my other LSR friends had a good Holiday weekend.

Charles
