The car is only being sold due to the owner having an issue with garaging his ever growing collection of cars. Get it installed right and adjusted often and it should last a while. It is a number between 0 and 10,000, with the default value of a new clutch being 4,000. A 360 with 30,000 miles is going to perform the same as one with 10,000 miles due to the short maintenance cycles that keep these cars running like now so when you're shopping don't ignore the high mileage cheaper ones. When the Spider was launched back in 2001, it was considered by many to be the quintessential sports car of the time. There was an update to the mechanism but most have been carried out by now on the early cars, check the roof cover panel when the roof is down for any scratches centre line that may point to a previous problem and check the cars history to see what was done.
It's now at 22K miles mostly at the track , and the clutch shows 75 to 80% of clutch remaining. The bodywork is in stunning condition apart from the front bumper which will need painting and the hood is also in excellent condition. It is not the be all and end all of measures and I have seen cars being driven with wear reported above 90%. The car has received periodic professional detailing and is free of the typical swirl marks that many cars have. The new Pininfarina body styling was a progressive leap toward a modern, yet purely Italian aesthetic. The proof of the pudding is in warranty claims I guess.
How much does a replacement cost? Durability and ReliabilityAll in all they are a tough car which should pull strongly from low revs with plently of torque and no vibration, if the engine feels a little tinny and vibrates when driven hard then this car has not had the care it should have had and walk away, The nice thing about 360's is that theirs plenty to choose from we have seen cars with 80k miles on them which run lovely, as always however try to buy the lowest mileage car you can to protect your residual value. In my mind it exemplifies the need to have the clutch parameters set up properly by someone who knows what they are doing. Many of the 360 examples on the market today are 15 years old. If im not mistaken, the clutch engagement on a 360 is similar to a traditional manual transmission, except the computer controls it. I've put 30000 miles on it in the last 21 months.
Used: A vehicle is considered used if it has been registered and issued a title. Cost of the Car 360s Range in Price a bit. This means that the lower gear can be instantly selected which means if there is no input on the throttle pedal ie: under braking then additional braking at the rear wheels in provided. Wet clutches are essentially immune to damage from clutch slip. It is accompanied by a complete factory book pack, stamped service book, numerous invoices plus its original tool-kit. It is very rare that we do not replace at least two ball joints on every car we see, but very rare that we need to replace both on each hub. Of course, everything in moderation.
Shifting at higher engine speeds and with a high throttle position speeds things up. Try a couple of fast changes down the box especially 2nd and 3rd just in case a syncro has a fault. It is measured in mm. Many criticize the 360 for the somewhat dated technology and sometimes awkward shifting of its F1 transmission, and thus, a cult-like following and demand for the manual transmission 360 coupes and spiders has evolved. How long can I expect the clutch to last, and is there any difference between the 360 and F430? This is a guess, but i know this is how the 2007 M6 handles clutch engagement.
Brakes 360 brakes are excellent they should be convincing, not judder - even when hot and brake in a very controllable manner, Brakes are expensive but on cars like these you should take no chances. All 360's have Aluminium panels which can corrode , this is shown by a slight bubbling in the paint or faint hairline cracks in the paintwork, most older cars will have very minor marks but if you come accoss several this car has been outside a lot, you also need to check the front scuttle panel, if the car has been damp for a while or left outside a lot this panel will be bubbling and cracks showing a white powder underneath, this needs to be dealt with asap correctly, but first check how bad it is, minor and early stages are not a main worry - but anything more will need proper refurbishment. So where does this leave us? Dry clutches are used in these types of systems. The dual clutch systems are different because they are essentially two transmissions combined along with two clutches. This is the distance, in mm, of the release bearing from the flywheel when the clutch is fully closed. Keep it maintained and it will provide you with years of driving for probably little or no depreciation. You can also inspect the clutch via a small port in the 360 anyway and visually check for wear, etc.
This means that slow speed manoeuvring forwards or backwards has a detrimental effect on clutch wear. When I did it I know the clutch is slipping at similar rpm, how does it know not to close the clutch and either stall or send me into the wall? A simpler more mechanical system apparently, that worked better in the racing environment. Clutch control in a manual 360 is simply a hydraulic master cylinder driven by the clutch pedal and a slave cylinder housed inside the gearbox. Sport driving mode speeds up the gear change, a higher throttle position also speeds it up as does changing up a gear at a high engine speed. Reminder: I don't own a Ferrari and everything I have said is the result of research and experience with other similar cars. Mileage is important but maintenance is far more important so consider maintenance records more important then high miles mileage. Vehicle Title: Clear Engine: 8 Fuel Type: Gas For Sale By: Dealer Sub Model: Convertible Doors: 2 Exterior Color: Blue Drivetrain: Rear Wheel Drive If your vehicle is near you, just make arrangements with the seller to pick it up.
In order to understand how to set and drive an F1 clutch, one must first understand how the system works. Firstly, when pulling away from standstill the clutch is not fully closed until the engine speed reaches 1,800 rpm. Auto mode slips more to be smooth, sport modes slip less and engage sooner to be more responsive. However, a good deal can be made on the F1 cars. The semi automatic F1 system was first introduced by Ferrari back in 1998 on the 355 and was carried through onto the 360, 575, F430, 612 and 599. However, they don't usually need adjustment if set up correctly when installed.
There should be no knocking noises when travelling over rough or poor surfaces, this sound is very metalic and is easy to spot on test drive, however if the car has been sitting for some time it may take a while to show this fault, this is due to the ball joints which hold the hubs top and bottom, They are a wearing item and are replaced around every 10k miles, they cost around £120 each each hub has two and need to be pressed in. Transmission is a fairly small unit compared to most sport car transmissions. This curve can tell us a number of things. There is a relay that controls the pump that is prone to failure —. High resolution photos, news items, Formula 1, if it concerns Ferrari, it belongs here! The rear of the wheel arches and lower scoops have impact protection stickers often turns a bit yellow check that any remedial paint has not been put over the top of them, and they should be replaced with new after painting. They can last 50k miles if you keep it out of traffic, avoid overheating it, and are conservative with reversing.
I hope to be able to demystify this topic and also challenge some of the common assumptions. The design was 28% lighter despite a 10% increase in overall dimensions as the 360 spider was longer and wider than a 355. It's certainly far more reliable thus far than the early iterations of the F1 system were. Lastly you said the clutch will be fully closed at 1. One trans handles even gears and the other handles odd gears.
