While I agree with most of this, keep in mind that the Eaton Superchargers have bypasses built in.
the bypass is going to be restrictive, its too small

the only way for a supercharger to be worth it is if it actually produces power, and it can run all the time.
For longevity purposes, I tend to agree. However, as Merlin pointed out, it appears to be only for the staging lanes, especially if N2O isn't allowed in the contest. I see this as a very viable solution for the 1/4 mile racer.
