F430 F1 issues list...

Can we get comments from F430 owners who have had issues with their F1 tranny? ANY issues minor or major are welcome. I realize they are more refined than the 360's but still very curious about frequency and types of problems. 6 sp manuals are too hard to find but still very attractive. Thanks in advance.

geeze...

Well, i had to check back on this thread...so it seems the F1 is pretty well built then. I just imagined my wife and i driving to visit the in-laws a couple hours away and F car would not shift. Not sure how i would face my father-in-law who is MR . conservative about my car that cost x times more than his. for those out there with issues who dont want to post, i'm very open to hearing your issues via PM. thanks in advance.

Only one issue

I was popping into neutral upon down shifting quickly with the slow down function light.

Apparently the bleeder screws came a little bit loose and it was allowing minute amounts of air into the F1 gearbox.

Quick 1 hour fix and only $500
