I found a link to a few photos of chute install on a fox, maybe that can give you some ideas...Parachute Install Pics but I couldn't find instructions.

Here is another pic I found.
Hope this helps.
Thanks! I'm really trying to find away to make it removeable....I still drive this car on the street occasionally!

I'm not planning on going any further with this car in regards to 4 linking or back halfing the car (no wheelie bars for me). I am planning on running a outlaw car by the end of next year if things go right. No need to trash a perfectly good street car!

A 175 shot, huh? Does that come with a diaper? Geez!
Well a 50 shot is going to hit those rods hard with a lot of tourque!! Just have a plan for a bottom end if you do run the 50! Heck, I have a spare bottom end and the one in the car is built to take 2000hp. You beat on them that hard, things happen!

No diaper, a blind fold instead!!

Now that has some promise! I might be able to live with that!

It's not really a matter of needing it for slowing the car. The brakes work great, it's just the rules and I don't want to get tossed everytime I go over 150 mph.

I think this chute is subtle (kinda) but still functional for the track if needed.

Well if it goes a low 8 I might see needing it. Otherwise it's there to satisfy the rules!

Might pull it once for fun!
