    rude 3 slip

    I had my rude 3 rebuilt the builder said he spoke with nils and he told him to set the slip on it @20 pounds. I thought most were setting them @18 pounds?

    I set mine up @ 20. Dropped to 19 after a couple hours and has held there for over 10 hours.

    Im going to agree with you. The spitfire is down and out for the season. I dont know why nils would have told the builder 20 pounds.

    Hmmm,ive talked with Nils many times and he has said Ideal slip on the 3 Rude is around 220 inch lbs..As you have found out if you go to high you will snap shafts...If you go 19 ft/lbs on a fresh SCer then after breakin you should fall to around 18 ft/lbs and it should stay providing your using good clutch and spring washers,which i know you are....

    I was at 20 before break in. After that it settled at 19 and has been great so far.

    I was putting around going on boost and off when it suddenly wentt totally into vacum. I was 50 feet from the trailer when it happened. I am hoping that the needle bearings didnt make into the oil pumps.

    12= 1 FT/lbs , times that by the PSI of boost your gonna be running and you should get this:

    12 x 16 PSI= 192 inch/lbs
    12 x 17 PSI= 204 inch/lbs
    12 x 18 PSI= 216 inch/lbs
    12 x 19 PSI= 228 inch/lbs

    Even at the lower boost it is still recommended to set the slip around 220 inch/lbs
