    Pretty neat Vid. 106mph(telemetry get over it) parachute deployment

    At my new spot. Got some pretty good new software for vids so look for some better ones in the coming weeks once I get it figured out. Also got an XL2 ordered.

    Somebody "unliked" the video, lol. Why would somebody do that? So weird.

    I modify the front of my cars to add downforce and I don't use that hideous "high down force" splitter.

    The rear camera isn't a GoPro and I have absolutely no idea how to adjust the date. The car in the video has a body that has definitely seen a better day. The windshield is definitely not as clear as it used to be. I just hate to screw up my new body until I absolutely have to.

    What did you do to modify the front of the car ?? It seems everytime I run the stupid high speed splitters they break. All I have to do is get into gravel on the side of the road and they break. I run my basher up to 80mph with the stock splitter never had a problem with flipping. I think that I'm wearing your video out I've watched it so many times !! I'm very impressed !!!

    There is always some jealous loser who clicks the dislike. Doesn't matter how awesome the video is or the subject. I clicked the like button. I think your parachute is grooooooovy.

    The hi downforce canards do work as long as they don't hit rocks. I have hit rocks center on and got all 4 wheels airborne at 75mph. That splitter/canard along with 6oz of lead in front brought it back to the pavement asap. No flip. I have not had mine full tilt without the splitter.

    I'm sure the high speed canards are effective but they come with a huge cost in drag. Not to mention they make your car look like a snowplow.

    I have to say that was very cool to see both views with the sound of the motor spooling all the way up. The parachute seemed very effective in taking the braking load off the electronics.
