Parachutes & Accessories
At what speeds do race cars need to be equipped with parachutes?
As per NHRA and IHRA drag race requirements, any car that exceeds 150mph in a quarter-mile must have a parachute—and two are required for cars that exceed 200mph.
When should a car parachute be packed?
The parachute should be packed at the racetrack but should be stored and transported unpacked to prevent deterioration or moisture build-up.
Where should a parachute pack be mounted?
Parachute packs must be angled at 45 degrees, behind the spoiler, to ensure it deploys properly. For a dual mount, the parachutes can be mounted parallel or angled by about 15 degrees for easier packing.
