Default Has anyone ever installed a Parachute on an S197...

....Because I just went 9.21 @ 151mph in the 1/4 mile and now I have to have one!



Yep, I promised someone special I'd lay one down just for them......guess I got a little carried away!

Here's a couple pic's from the night!

Wow, great pictures!

I don't have a parachute but I do have an EJECT button.

Well since I'm not spraying out of the hole yet, I haven't even put on the smallest pulley the blower will take (I have the 2-7/8" pulley on now). It's just a matter of finding a track this time of year that can hold the car.

Oh did I mention I'm only running a 75 shot of nitrous also. I can go up to a 175!

LOL, I am thinking about putting on a 50 shot and seeing what the stock block can do.

A 175 shot, huh? Does that come with a diaper? Geez!

Man your car never ceases to amaze me .

I saw a parachute installed on a members car where the license plate was moved to between the tail lights (like the saleen) and the parachute was installed in the plates original location.
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.
