Mine has the spring too and it is annoying to put in the pack with it, however the video sure makes getting the chute and lines packed up easier. It is suppose to be 65 and warm today and I may open the shop doors and try this. Thanks for the help RJ.Is it me, or what, but where is the big spring? My stroud is a bitch to stuff in by myself. Or was that a "launcher" chute?
EDIT: Nevermind, saw that was a launcher style.
you're welcome good luck with the car and thank you for the compliments, it is always nice to hear from someone that enjoys the hardwork we put into the cars, good luck!Thanks Rickie,I,m going to crew the John Woods firebird you guys built last year for a friend of mine based in Las Vegas.Been 10 years since I packed a chute and the refresher is very helpful.RJ Race Cars are the nicest on the market,thanks for a great product and support.

In our pro nitrous cars we use the nitrous to run the parachutes.Hey RJ,
I just got rid of my spring and went with the air launcher. I spoke to shroud and they don't recomend (as well as u won't) using NO 2 to use instead of air. It would have 8 ft of #3 line . I dont think it would ever reach the cylinder. I figured it will always be full so no mistakes running out of air or not arming.Also shut off bottle and easy purge out the system, turn on bottle arms launcher cylinder .Idiot proof ,lol
Anyone out there doing this ?
Thanks , I will give u a call if i need some parts. I was thinking a #3 because its omly 1 chute .(?)In our pro nitrous cars we use the nitrous to run the parachutes.
Instead of using -3 line which like you said might be too small, we put a "T" before the ball valve and run an air regulator with a 3/8 air line to the parachutes. We should have the regulator and fittings in stock depending on the thread size of your ball valves.
