No, but the air sucked and traction at this track was non-existent.  It was a good start.  More on my update later today...

Thanks and yes, bad air and no traction makes for a frustrating time, for sure!

Is the laundry bag new, or always been on this car?

Ahh HA   I thought I recognized that dragstrip.. The country's most expensive test and tune, and legendary lack of traction. Oh  I almost forgot the  hostile, and unwelcoming ownership and tech inspectors.......   You pretty well hit the nail on the head there Royce.  But I have had a few good experiences there.

I'll answer for Jay. All his DragWeek cars have a receiver hitch for the trailer he tows. The parachute is attached to a mount that slips into the receiver hitch and is removable. So yes he's had it, just not always attached.
