Possible SC Issue
Had the RXT out today for about 15 minutes reaching RPM of 7860-7920 (normal for me here in Florida). Did some tight turns and then noticed that the RPMs were topping out at 7200-7340.
Intake Grate is clear and the OPAS Paddles are locked up with a Riva Kit. I can hear the SC spinning and it sounds okay, however, it is very close to 100 hours and needs a rebuild. I'll probably pull it tomorrow, but at 7200 RPM, could it have already gone? Or is it probably something else?

Intake hose off, finger tips slightly burnt, but the wheel didn't spin at all from finger pressure. Phew!
I'll pull the charger tomorrow and send it out for a rebuild. Thanks for the quick response!

before you send it off lets check the slip on it.. I know it needs rebuilt anyway....... Didn't Brian just check those chargers for you??? they were in spec.. even though they are around the rebuild hrs.....

If there was a supercharger clutch problem the RPM's would have dropped into the low 6000 range.
If your spark plugs have not been changed for some time then I'm betting a fresh set solves your issue

Bad plugs will have you chasing your tail for weeks.
