    R&D Super Clutch is now available!!

    The long awaited super clutch from R&D is now available!
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=2140

    This is the slipper clutch version that mounts inside the supercharger and includes a new hardened SC shaft along with all neccessary hardware to complete the kit. I was also informed that R&D is offering a free machining service to install the kit. All you have to do is send in your SC and they will machine the rear of the housing to fit the assembly and install the kit for you. They will have a baseline setup for it and it will be adjustable to suit your needs. Since everyone's setup will vary, there is no one size fits all so you will most likely need to play around a little with it to get the clutch setup right to avoid future sprag failures. I will be sending mine off very shortly to have the kit installed and will report back when I get it in and tested. Unfortunately that probably won't be until spring since we are heading into our off season but hopefully some of those Aussi guys will have some feedback for us over the winter. I am putting alot of faith in this design and since I am on my 3rd sprag in the last few riding months, I am really hoping this does it. Like alot on here, I have too much time and money into my ski to be worried about frying clutches all the time so we will see how this works out.

    So is this product a substitute for the factory clutch or is it used in addition to the stock clutch?

    It is designed to replace the internal shaft on the SC and will still be used with stock sprag and intermediate gear. That is the original intention. If someone was brave and made a solid gear to replace the sprag, they may be able to get away with it as this design will slip but not sure if it will slip enough to save the teeth or something else from breaking and still have enough pressure to spool the charger up to make proper boost levels. I still think they will need to work hand in hand to eliviate the different stress levels each component will see during operation.

    I will certainly keep you guys updated but it won't be a tomorrow, next week or next month thing as this will take time to see how well it works. I have not gotten it yet so no pictures yet.
