    that reliable huh? what are you guys allowed to change modify or add in them at all?

    The only difference between the Challenge clutch and the standard F430 clutch is the friction material. Otherwise, its the same design. Dual disc as in two friction plates.

    The gearbox does not use concentric shafts, as used in the F355. The F430 box/transaxle is a conventional single input shaft, single output to final drive/diff.

    What you're describing with gear preselection is the F1 double clutch gearbox/transaxle in the California and F458.

    how much is involved out of pocket for the team owner to get into this? is it all by invitation also? i'm guessing budget for the year for one team, 5-7 million?

    btw i use to be part of a super small drag racing team furthest we ever went was from ct to cali. and i watch f1 and wrc.. i havent really been a part of a team again for like 8 years now. and to have you here sharing "THIS" with us is super cool in my eyes.

    No common failures - very reliable.

    Yup, they're all the F1 gearbox. (not an automatic). Manual gearbox with electro hydraulic gear selection. No auto mode and no torque converter. Dual disc metallic clutch.

    The break down above of the surface explains alot.
    I would love to walk around an entire F1 car with you.
    Not sure if we're going to be the support race at Montreal this year. Our schedule will be released around January.

    Eddie
    Eddie, I don't and have not owned any of these. I'm a race engineer in the F430 Challenge series, and have some friends at Ferraris F1 Clienti division. I was working at the Challenge World Finals and my friends at F1 Clienti let me look around their garages and take pics.

    Here is the other thread, with pics of the car I engineer:
