... another beginner asking about a Testarossa
Hello, I am thinking about buying a Testarossa, in Europe (Spain). I have been doing some research, spending a few hours with the Search function trying to understand what you guys have been discussing about this car so far.
I know this question has been asked many times before, but I see there are questions and answers correspond to very different times, and it could happen that what was right in say 2005 or 2007, now it is not right anymore, since something has changed in the meantime (e.g. fuse box of SR Innovations):
What are the critical issues for a Testarossa?
Let me list what I think I have found so far, and please correct / add:
1. Fuse box: apparently, this problem has been corrected with SR Innovations. Everybody agrees this is something that has to be done. Specialists in Spain confirm the fuse box is a problem (but nobody, as far as I know, knows SR Innovations here)
2. Differential: in this forum, it has been discussed that Newman and Philwozza products are really necessary, since diffs break down, it is just a question of time (when, not if). However, in Spain people tell me this is not a serious problem. Who should I believe?
3. Gearbox: I do not know if gearbox problems are the same as diff problems or not. Some people suggest to change the gearbox for one of the 512TR, but I do not see a specific solution such as (1) or (2) above
4. Distribution, clutches ... tend to be expensive. But that is fine, I understand that before buying the car
BTW, I have checked the Buying Guides, but I do think there I can give an answer to my questions.
