Tuesday Tech Question presented by Evans Coolant

Question:

I am getting together a new Competition Eliminator car that I plan to run in C/D.  My hopes are that the car will run in the 6.8 second range at over 200 mph.  Will I only need one parachute?

Answer:

That is not correct.  Dual parachutes are required on all cars running 200 mph or more.  Since your car will be capable of these speeds, you will be required to have two parachutes.
