Why are you continuing to accelerate while reaching for the chute?????????

Because stupidity. It's either one or the other. Keep going with 2 hands on the wheel until you want to pull the chute or just abort the run. He tried to do both and it almost went horribly wrong. Somebody else needs to drive that car.

I'm surprised there was no type of down force for that car. Look like regular z06 on the outside with chute in the back.

It doesn't take someone with 100 passes down the air strip to give good driving advice. Both hands on the wheel if you aren't shifting or pulling the chute. Know where to reach for your chute before you need it. Know when to abort a run or ease off of the throttle. Common sense shit.

not at my post...

you drive into the chute, so it properly inflates... There are systems that have a push button for deployment as well, though you would still want the lever for backup.

FFS, this! Every one of these videos where some yahoo is driving one-handed, usually with his belts looser than a Tijuana hooker, makes my eyes roll involuntarily.
