    Which S/C is better?

    This is not a turbo vs. S/C question, this is a which S/C will produce the most power and not need to be re shimed after every ride.

    From what I've heard is its really close between Rude and the C kit, with the C kit having a slight edge and $1000 heavier price tag.

    Remember my advice maybe worth exactly waht you paid for it.

    One thing to keep in mind is the more boost your supercharger makes the more stress it will put on the clutch.

    I have seen people get 50 hours out of a Rude Charger before reshimming. I have also seen people only get 8-10 hours. It all depends on your riding style.
    Zapata rebuilds his superchargers after every moto.

    I Would Have To Pick My C-kit It Is The Most Powerful That I Have Felt So Far And I Did See 15.0 Lbs Boost Today

    I don't think there's an SC out there that needs to be reshimmed after every ride unless you're racing CC or something. Like others have stated it depends on ride style and how much boost the SC is putting out. So in that case the most powerful SC to my knowledge would be the C-kit (***disputes in some tests btwn. it and the Rude depending on how everything is set up***).

    I was being a little sarcastic about shimming it every time out but it doesn't seem like the results with some of these s/c's are real great. More psi doesn't always mean more speed I would expect a 15 psi stg 3 ski to be at least going 83-84

    more psi = more speed on the same setup, if you have enough fuel and you are not on the REV Limiter! if you are you pitch the Impeller or try a smaller nozzle ring, and you get more speed.

    to gain speed at 82 mpH + is not a easy task and has not allways to do with power
