Drag chutes only understand two things: weight and speed. Body styles do enter into the picture. You can figure out how much canopy you need and match it to your class by using the formula below:
Remember, this is only a guide…
(Weight of car, in pounds) X (Speed, in mph) / 1,000
For example: (1,600 X 150) / 1,000 = 240 This is the MAX limit for S/C.
If you have a higher number than this, you require a stronger chute.
S/C 400 or less S/G 410 or less C/E 420 or less P/S 430 or less Alcohol / Fuel Rail Must use 2 chutes / Alcohol / Fuel Funny Must use 2 chutes.
With over 25 years in the business, Stroud Safety has established itself as the premier name in automotive parachute technology. Stroud Chutes are well-known for always opening softly and predictably. These chutes have been designed so one person alone can pack them quickly and easily in about 5 minutes. Stroud Chutes don’t pull the car off the ground; they pull low and straight back, opening softer and more reliably than conventional chutes. Ultimately this technology stops your car in less distance than any competitor chute.
