SC shimming and rebuilds
Many here have purchased new SC whether it be a rude, B-kit or C-kit.
We pay good money for these little upgrades.
To anyone that has purchased such a gizmo; have you found the quality of the intial buildsup to par and perform as stated right out of the box? Or, have you needed shimming or other work to get the SC within spec?

the problem is... with all fresh parts installed by the manufacturer, everything is up to snuff when it leaves their hands
the first day you ride your ski, all those specs change... consider it supercharger break-in, except it happens very very quickly, but it doesn't happen on a work bench
some wear in more than others, some require building up more tension with a shim after that first ride, and some get by no problem

Yep and IMO if you go more than two shims you need to look for wear an tear on the parts. I have gone 3 shims before, but than again I like Just 2. I will go 3 if I don't have the parts on hand.
