when i'm leaving off a foot/hand brake, i prestage then bring up RPM to pre-determined RPM and bump in

From what i've seen - foot brake converters are usually pretty loose compared to a transbrake converter

I would call DJ Safety and see what chute they recommend.  That was how i sized mine a few years ago.

I've ran most brands over the years.

I like simpson shroud lines, DJ canopies and Stroud "bag in a bag" technology.

I've added Stroud bags to my DJ chutes. 

DJ provides the best service i've found.  Chutes go thru xxxx. They are a maintenance item for sure (if used regularly)

I can provide pics if wanted to the bag in a bag deal.  It makes packing them so nice....I pull both chutes every run, so we get a lot of practice. :)

Yes, my mag has a 2 step on it. 

It was a good day testing. Made two laps.  Had a couple cameras on the car. 

I run against the NE/1 index (7.60).  First run was 7.603/177, second run, it paddled the tire a big, ran 7.637, Track got really good and just didn't bring enough wheel speed.  oops.

99-100% HRHS rules.  Butch tries super hard to mimic their rules. 

Car's in & tight.  Hoping the warm(er) weather shows up tomorrow so we'll have some type of racing surface.

If anyone's in Sac area, stop by and say hi.

I will test @ Sac once in a while, like this saturday.  There are about 5 of us going out.

I race Famoso about 6 times a year.  Samoa, Sonoma, Fallon, and Redding are the other main stays.

I've been running ANRA for 14 years or so.  Great group.  Butch is top notch.

I started there in HR, then D/G, then C/G, then bought a dragster in 08, and have been in NE/1 since.

With my pedal clutch I burn .005-.007 I know I have burnt more than that but my shift light would stay on... just add some weight to your arms not sure how many grams you currently have on your clutch but figure that out and go from there

For comparison, our A/F (BAD) pedal clutch car wore .003-.005 per pass. Closer to .005.

I agree, sounds like .015 is a bunch.  i don't know much about them, learning a lot. i'll be watching.

I ran mine off the trigger.   if it can fire a 2 step, it's counting, so you can run the light off it too
