    Rude2 supercharger slip

    On a Rude2 supercharger, is 22N-m lbs OK for slip or is it too tight? I've tried every combo with McMasters washers, stock washers, & shims. I'm either too tight with no slip or too loose. I have a dial CDI 600 inch/70N-m lbs torque wrench.

    Thats a bit on the high side. You can wear down the L ring to get the slip where you need it.

    I saw that tread. Help me understand slip. What happens if my slip is too high? I've had you suggest 12 lbs in the past, & others suggest up to 14 lbs. I'm sitting at 16 lbs. What do I need to get it down too?

    your shaft will break if it is locked up... I had the same problem shiming 2Rude for the first time. went from 10 lbs to 16 LBS. I did what GH said to do with L-ring and its now 14.5 ft/lbs

    12-14 ft lbs is optimal.

    Used 1 McMaster washer, 1 shim, and got slip at 22N-m. Sanded down the L ring and got 20N-m. Sanded again & got it down to 17N-m. Great trick. Thanks Greenhulk

    To save cutting down the nut, you can use different thickness shims. Ive got 4 5 8 10 thou shims it just gives you that little bit more adjustment when setting the slip.
