Thinking out of the (blower) box
I ran into one of these this weekend it got me thinking. Could the blower and intercooler get relocated to the bow using something like this.

You have a drive shaft back there. If the stock blower is gone and most of the stock hoses are gone....

My bet is you could get around the slip issue. I wonder if you could go with hydraulic drive?

a SC does nothing better than a turbo
now a turbo does many things better than a SC
no belts, lighter, no clutch needed, free power
a small turbo can make boost faster than a SC

What is the weight of a water cooled turbo when water is surrounding it?
With most all of the motors I tune, throttle response and driveability is everything. Sure these guys love HP but you need it fast.
I wonder if we could build a boost accumulator box? I need to think about that one..... The racers are out of the throttle about 2.5 sec on corner entry.... You may find it would just blow off the prop on corner exit....

the water cooled turbo housing is heavy but still lighter than a pulley system
the amount of water in mine is like a big gulp or a couple beers
rpm based boost control can give SC like performance
also traction control may be used if needed
a SC that can make boost at lower rpm will be screaming at 9000
