I know it seems nit-picky, but is there a preference for having the anchor pin horizontal or vertical...I see it both ways.

This is RVW's '64 Plymouth from B Bodies only.

That is nice where you can pre fab the whole thing and then mount it.

My cars are in California right now. I will be there this weekend racing and will get some pics of that I have. The anchor point it tied tot he chassis and the cute pack themselves are on liteweight small diameter(3/8")moly tubing.

This is what we use to mount the chute pack itself. Just attach it to the anchor point mount with pins.

I like your optimism about running 8s Al.
But don't you think you should get the car down the track consistently first before spending on a chute?
I've seen lots of cars running in the 8s with no chute as well as others with chutes that are never used.
You can buy lots of fuel with what a chute will cost.
Best of luck with your project.

I agree.. I have a chute and only use it on a
few tracks.. I prefer not to use it unless needed..
I hate packing it even if its so called "easy"

The car is consistant.It goes consistanty faster every pass whistling
The track will see over 150 MPH and they will give you one warning.Have been almost 145 on pump gas.With the other mods that are being done 150 should be off the truck with a street driven heap.I follow in Freds footsteps in being an exibitionist and maybe some match race bandits no

Next question....how far away from the car does the mount need to be so it opens properly??I have seen from 4 inches to 12 inches work

Best pass last season it went a click under 147mph and 9.3x.That was 6 lbs of boost.Real happy with the progress! Just been too cold to work in the garage wrench

Its not a question of really how far. A lot of cars put them back a little bit to avoid the wheelie bars, wings etc. The spring will launch the pilot far enough to make sure it blooms you just don't want it caught up on anything back there. Don't angle it down for sure, slight upward angle and far enough to clear anything in the way easily. On the Vette it is MAYBE 4" from the body, never an issue with it...

Does the spring launcher get flush mounted or does it protrude from where the chute pack is mounted?
Is the spring launcher that much better ????

No launcher on the Vette just it is just spring launched. My Stratus uses air launchers.
