Chassisworks’ CDS Supercharger Gear Drives

Component Drive Systems (CDS) is an exciting new line of products from Chris Alston’s Chassisworks focused on offering the highest-quality, direct bolt-on, gear- and belt-driven accessory systems for popular racing and street-performance engines. The initial CDS product group is a selection of billet-aluminum gear drives designed for single- or dual-configurations of ProCharger, Vortech, and Paxton superchargers on Chevy small-block, big-block, or LS-series engines, and Ford small-block and modular motors. Properly designed gear drives increase reliability in high-horsepower applications by eliminating side loads on the crank and supercharger bearings, unavoidable with belt-driven systems, and allow back peddling the motor without risk of throwing a belt. Gear sets can be configured to overdrive or under-drive the supercharger/s, enabling maximum output at lower engine RPM or reducing output for more streetable power levels. All drive units include integral timing pointer, crank trigger mount, oil level sight glass, and gear-case vent. For complete details visit www.cachassisworks.com or call direct to 800-722-2269.

Yes, don't pin the crank, just move everything that sits within 14 inches of the front of your engine and make room for this...ya that makes sense on nothing but a dedicated race car! :D

But in all honesty, you still have to pin the crank because the pulley pressed onto the crank is still going to slip under the load of the blowers, especially the dual blower set-up...

The closest thing we have as an option is the HOB dedicated drive outfitted with a 30mm cog or the Procharger LSx cog drive set-up! Either way, belt tension with cog isn't a big deal and you will obviously still have to pin the crank...

a gear drive costs just as much, or more than, the blower itself

You wouldn't even be pinning the crank in an application like that. When you step into cog drives and gear drives you will be running double key ways on the crank snout. :cheers1:
