1st gear synchro issue on a Scud
A friend of mine owns a Scud that he bought brand new.
In 2013 when the car was 24000km, he experimented some issues trying to engage 1st gear when the car was warm. It was much easier when the car was cold. Verdict, the 1st gear synchro was broken. No sensible explanation by Ferrari WE and no participation to the repair, he had to bite the bullet.
Two weeks ago, at a track event, the very same symptoms reappeared. The car has now 27000km. Gearbox has been removed and, again, the 1st gear synchro is broken. 3000km from the previous repair, the same failure and the same lack of explanation.
It's worth noted that my friend does not abuse his Scud. Such a repetitive problem on the 1st gear looks very strange.
Any thoughts guys? Is it a known problem on the Scuds? Does anybody encountered the same issue?
Thanks for any help.
