belt slippage


will

Recommended Posts

Just got my 1st shelby. Not familiar with super chargers. But I'm assuming I'm having major slippage. When I accelerate hard I hear the super charger spin and my rpms shoot across but the car doesn't react. What could cause this and how can I tell if it's slipping? I hav an 08 gt500 with a nice size kenne bell mammoth on it.

The Belt may be Glazed.

 

If you decide to Replace it, buy TWO and keep the Spare in the trunk just in case you need it in your Travels.

Appreciate the replies. This is my 1st post. And it may b the clutch. I wondered about hearing the super charger spin. If it's my clutch, any suggestions on a good replacement? Gotta get this thing diagnosed fast.

At about 9 or 10 psi during acceleration that's when something slips. The rpms will jump across and almost red line if u dnt let off. I figured I shudnt hear the super charger spin if the belt is slippn. But it's clearly spinning. It may b my clutch then. Any suggestions?
