    My RUDE charger exploded!

    At the weekend my rude charger exploded and blew the casing apart. The photos show all that is left. Not sure what caused it but it was not a foreign object or water as the filter is up high and everthing else is sealed off with tape when racing with flow rites for air flow.

    Luckily the intercooler caught all of the chunks that were not in the bottom of the hull and there was no aluminium dust to be seen.

    Charger had less than 5 hours on it and is about 8 months old. It was an expensive race weekend!

    That's what I thought, do these come with warranty?

    I think I'll go billet next.

    The only time I have seen anything like that was from something being ingested into the SC. Was your boost levels OK just prior to this ?
