    another broken super charger shaft Rude 3

    cant figure out what broke it. snapped off right at the bearing. complete end assembly intact. When it broke it tore up the teeth on the flywheel. I dont run a blow off. I am thinking I came off throttle too fast. It broke while crusing at 8400 rpm 78 mph but I think when I was running buoys and was letting off fast from full throttle may have damaged it then. It wasnt long after that it broke. The charger was rebuilt about 5 hours prior. Anybody running into this? Second time it has happened to me.

    185 in pd slip. I have blown up several sc. I dont baby anything. The last rude 3 that blew had 42 hours on it and the bearings gave out had to clean out motor of metal. I would advise rebuild if you have 40 hours on one. Took out two flywheels. It is in an RXT runs 82 mph (for a little while}
