    If you over torque the nut then no slippage of the supercharger gear.

    If there is no slippage then there will be no burning, but if you lock it down you will snap the shaft and then you have real problems.

    Slipping is what the clutch is designed to do. If the clutch is not set properly or old and worn excessive slippage could happen meaning it would be slipping all the time which would burn out the clutch.

    Locking the clutch down to the point where it will not slip under any conditions by means of over shimming would lead to a failure of the shaft.

    Some slippage is needed and that's why there is a clutch on the SC.
    When you're engine is running at top RPM, the SC is making max boost. Then when you shut down the throttle the SC is still spinning making boost. This extra boost has no place to go, so the SC needs to slip on the shaft so it doesn't make any more boost pressure.
