Pushing the limits of what many consider a street car can be somewhat of a challenge to take to the track, the problem arises on how to meet the requirement by NHRA and other sanctioned drag strips requiring a parachute for cars trapping over 150mph. Vader Solutions removable parachute mount for the F30 F80 F82 BMW allows a parachute to be safety mounted to the vehicle for days at the drag strip, and easily removed with a single bolt for normal street driving. Designed in CAD before being laser cut and CNC bent, our removable chute mounts are manufactured from lightweight chromoly steel. The mounts are built in custom fixtures to ensure accurate fitment and are tig welded as well as powdercoated to prevent surface corrosion.
The mount is designed to replace the factory rear bumper support, using the existing OEM support holes for secure mounting. We have also integrated the appropriate mounts to allow the factory foam bumper support to remain in place preventing the bumper from sagging. We also include a CAD drawn cut template to allow you to accurately measure and cut your OEM bumper to clear the chute mount. The required cut hole is designed to be as minimal as possible to allow for easy concealment by your license plate when not in use.
The parachute mounts come already powdercoated in black. This kit comes with everything required to pass NHRA regulations at the track.
