Few issues

Hi all,
Just had my second drive of the F1
Ive stalled it about ten times trying to do a three point turn.
Plus moving off with lock on the steering wheel.
Is it user error.
Plus is it possible to select neutral.
Thanks

Not sure I understand what exactly are your issues Locked steering wheel? Are you sure you've entirely read the F1 section of the manual?

I would like to help you out but please, can you be a bit more explicit?

Gary- You can select neutral at any time by pulling back on both the upshift and downshift paddles simultaneously. You should actually be doing that before you start the car to make it a little easier on the system. It will select neutral for you if you start in 1st or reverse, but the OMs recommend neutral for start. Treat the car as if it is a three pedal car without the third pedal and do the same things you would do with a manual shifter and you will enjoy the F1 system.

Not sure I have ever tried any full lock starts in my car, but that makes it rough on any car since it is pushing on the front tires rather than rolling at first. You might try starting with wheels pointed straight and then cranking in lock after she starts moving. Widens the turn a bit, but should prevent the stalling.

Not sure if you can stall an F1.

I had mine for a year and a half and I have never ever stalled it, not once!

I suspect there might be a problem somewhere.

Harry- Try cranking the steering over full lock and see how she does when you start that way. I have never stalled mine, either, but have never done a full lock start.

But you could be correct and PIS could be mis-set and the clutch is dragging when it should be released.

Hi Terry,

I have tried it during a 3 point turn and still it doesn't stall.

There has to be something else wrong with his car...

Most probably the point of initial slip as you have mentioned.

I have no direct knowledge, but I have heard, slow turns and/or certain gears can choke the system. I thought that were especially true in slowing down into 2nd and initiating a sharp turn.

then again, It's best to keep my mouth shut on these F1 systems, but I thought that were a known problem in that area.

Oh!!!

You might have just hit the nail on the head there.

Yes, you definitely need to have the revs a little higher when performing these manoeuvres.
The same principle goes when you start on a hill.
You need to press the accelerator harder than when you start on a flat surface!

HUH?

There is something amiss here. Your car should not stall when performing the manuvers you describe.

Would that be a hydraulic steering pump issue taking too much force from the engine up to the point to stall it?
