rules over the years I've used several different brands of chutes.Like the 3 bears, some hit too hard, some too soft and some just right...by any chance, are the ones that tore off the same brand? Are they hard hitting? I've even had 1 that I thought was going to put me on the dash! With all the "pass the buck" Impact problems that went on for years, got to wonder if there is a chute manufacturer out there with a problem.If not, do they pull the housing off the chassis next? Are the chromoly housings too weak?My chute mount is also the anti-rotation pad so it is attached to the bottom of the housing and the chassis.don't know if it helps, but? As for carbon brakes, both cars at Englishtown had them,I had them in Charlotte...not anymore..I'll only put them back if I have to..not to say you should not use them, I'm just not sure they are the magic bullet. I was there when they had us add the second chute,. when they had us add front brakes,when they had us add the new helmet bar and 6 point cage,,when they had us add the new helmet pads, and every one of them was a good idea. but now we are beyond what I always referred to as the $1000 rule..thats what it has been averaging for rule updates to remain legal. Carbon isn't even required in nitro classes...they all use it, but do we need to put some of us slower cars out of business? If NHRA was to say carbon is recommended and will be required down the road, then new cars will come with them and we can budget accordingly to upgrade. But to say park it or come up with the dough? I can't ..Don't get me wrong, I think every effort should be made to stay as safe as possible..but not everyone is a top 20 team and if we're not careful, there won't be enough teams to bother with.There are alot of 5.80/ 5.90 cars that got permanently parked in the last few years because of money. Rules for chutes are, any vehicle over 150 mph is required...well how about any vehicle over 240/250/or what ever is required to use carbon?
