testarossa clutch shifter

hi guys..is the testarossa's clutch shifter (any year) easier to shift than any other car, like a honda or subaru or something..it seems like it is..other stickshift cars i dont seem to get the way you shift because it seems like you can mess up and shift into the wrong gear, but the testarossa's seems easier, but i hear you need muscles to shift it..i love the styling of it though..and i also had a dream just last night about shifting the testarossa..thought it was pretty easy..hopefully it is..thanks

Hello...the Testarossa requires deliberate effort to shift properly, but the gated shifter plate does assure your getting into the gear you want. It's true that sometimes in other cars that don't have the shifter gate like Ferraris use, you can miss a gear or go into the wrong gear.

Your "dream" was basically correct, a properly adjusted shifter on a Testarossa is fairly easy to shift.

Occasionally on a cold gearbox the Testarossa will be a little stiff...that 1-2 dogleg is just a bit fussy on mine until she is warm...also if you are having trouble putting it into first at a stoplight put it into 3rd then go back to first for some reason it helps on mine

So as you can see the situation can get pretty grim at times. Barbie has died 5 times. Twice by gunfire, once in the explosion, once by a vicious beating and once when thrown from the Ferrari after it flew off a cliff.
