    That would have been for a stock engine, recreational use, running stock RPM limiter, no?

    Yeah i guess so!! I am surprised it happened. I do a lot of racing and its been through a lot!! 300 superchargers are very well built with no issues when stock or even at stage 2

    Every mechanical part will have a failure at some point.


    What exactly happened to the clutch? Things got really hot there.

    Why would you replace a whole new supercharger when you can get all the pieces separately?

    Well yeah things got really hot there! Quality of the clutch washers is very very good. If this happened on previous models i would have to take the engine out searching for bits and pieces!!

    Did you adjust your slip for the higher rpms? My guess is it was way too low and was just slipping the whole time.
