So i've been reading up a bit about the new Manettino
looks like a real fun thing to use on the track, BUT if i understand the working of it correctly then it seems that it's only available on an F1 gearbox
Ferrari says that they suspect to sell about 80% with F1 box, altough it is option, manual is still standard.

but reading on how the thing works and what it does, i get the feeling that it can't work on a manual F430
so, if somebody orders a manual one, is the Manettino still on the steering wheel? and how does it work then???

A maninetto is the F1 thingy you can find on the steering wheel of the F430, you can adjust it to rain, snow etc, so the car adjusts itself when you put it in another mode. The Scuderia calls these Maninetto's on their F1 cars, so they transferred the name to the streetcars.

Andrew

this is the Manettino (look at attachement)

it's the new "gadget" on the F430 to assist the driver mainly on the track
depending on the setting the electronics will change the gearbox (auto or manual paddle's), change the gearchange intervals, change the damping on the springs,...

but what i seem to understand from it is that if you choose a manual F430, then i doubt that the Manettino can work
so is it still mounted on the steering wheel then? or is it available but with less "options"

Nobody has an idea of this??

or better, has somebody already ran into a manual F430?
because at the moment it looks more like it that it will be 90-95% with an F1 gearbox

I don't think a manual F430 is even produced yet... They usually start with the F1s, and because the waiting line is very long, I think they want to produce masses first before they start on the manual box

On the manual 360, all the controls that are found in the F1 car is alos there. The Manettino is a control that can dial the electronic differential to whatever situation you're in. It then controls the differential and is linked to the engine ECU (the brains) that adjust everything else. It is not specifically a function switch that controls the gearbox. And don't forget the F1 is also a "manual" gearbox that's changed electrically. The ECU does not change the gear for instance, it will together with the Manettino direct the power/drive to whatever wheel that has better traction. My guess! :green:

Sorry for intervention...but... Why can'r Ferrari make from Manetino a system like is on the Mitsubishi Lancer EVOVIII. They has a similar system wich plays with differencial, shocks, suspension etc, and has a Manual GearBox..... The Manetino can do it as well, it only will not affect the Gearbox... My opinion. Am I Wrong???? :oops:

I agree with Stradale. I don't see any reason that the Manettino system can not be adpoted for the manual 430's.
