The dragster has a mass of 1.3 Mg and a center of mass at G. If a braking parachute is attached at C and provides a horizontal braking force FD, determine the maximum deceleration the dragster can have upon releasing the parachute without tipping the dragster over backwards (i.e., the normal force under the wheels and assume that the engine is disengaged so that the wheels are freely rolling.

[A]. a = 16.35 m/s2
[B]. a = 8.46 m/s2
[C]. a = 2.75 m/s2
[D]. a = 35.0 m/s2
