The transmissions in the manual shifter cars are identical to those in the F1 cars, as is the clutch. In general, the transaxle has not been much of a problem in either if the transmission oil is changed annually or at least every two years. Ferrari pump driven transmissions like having fresh oil.
There is no stability control on the 360, but the ABS system is involved in the ASR (acceleration slip regulation) or traction control. The ASR will use a combination of throttle control and brakes to try and minimize rear wheel spin. The E-Diff on the F430, combined with stability control, is much more sophisticated and E-Diff works even in CST Off. It works so well, it is just like ABS, you do not want to, nor can you, turn it off. With CST Off, you can scare yourself in an F430 just as thoroughly as you can a in 360 with ASR off. Note in ASR Off, the limited slip rear end still works, and is the equivalent of the E-Diff.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
