    Supercharger slip question

    If a guy was converting a stock supercharger to a Rude 2, what would be the best thing to do as far as the slip & washers? Go with a 08 shaft upgrade? Would you still need to do the Riva washers? What should the slip be set to? I'm converting to a Rude 2 & I'm not sure what else I need to do. I'm going to a level that may be a little over my head, but what the hell, I don't want to keep upgrading my wheel every year.

    08 shaft with riva washers and a minimum of 12ft.lbs of slip.

    be sure to check the slip after about 5 - 10 hours of use and reshim.

    ....right on the SC slip, and, I'm sure you know you're going to at least need 42# injectors AND a RRFPR to run the Rude2. At that level, it's also highly advisable to have an O2 bung in your J-pipe and a wideband to confirm your AFR.

    i would go 14-15 lb of slip and check after 10 hrs riva metal washers for the 08 shaft

    Yes, I have a RRFPR & I'm going to 42's or maybe 50's on the injectors. Don't have a O2 bung yet, but I'm thinking about doing it. What AFR should I use? Now that I'm going to this level, how long can the bearings & washers last, & after 10 hrs, what would be the next amount of time to check slip again? Thanks for the help. I'm going way over my head on this setup, but what the heck.

    I would still go with the 08 clutch/shaft kit and ditch the OEM metal washers and install Riva washers. Been hearing about many of the OEM washers breaking.

    On the original Rude 12-13 ft lbs is plenty of slip.

    My stock 07 supercharger was just rebuilt with an 09 rebuild kit. Can I still use my 07 RIVA washers?

    Looking at this it doesnt look like they will work. The kits were changed out in 08.

    NO MORE than 14ft/lb though, as you risk the impeller pulling itself apart. Like Jerry says... 12-13... 14 max. And ensure the Air/fuel ratio is set correctly, especially if doing extended runs. Ideally I have found 11.7 to be a good ratio.
