    Ghibli II winter works

    The roughness should be an easy fix. Even a nice big, new and flat oilstone worked back and forth manually should solve that. Good luck anyway, you have admirable courage and drive for your project!

    they are doing quite a good job (on dumb 'ol me, at least) of building the hype..

    Stradale CCB pads: Brembo part numbers?

    At least they made those of brass. Steel and you'd be buying some rather expensive disks. I guess I'll just order a set from Eurospares, at least that way when I pop mine off (I'll be diying) I'll have them handy.

    Stradale CCB pads: Brembo part numbers?

    Thanks Stuart. Do you happen to have a picture that shows the thickness of your worn pads?

    Stradale CCB pads: Brembo part numbers?

    Unfortunately my pads are getting a little too thin. What is minimum thickness, and had anyone spied a Brembo part number that may be cheaper than the Maserati package?

    Alfieri update

    The alfa 4c is too small if you ask me. Hoping for something between that and a GT. Oh, and a non turbo v8 please..

    Mine won't either, to be honest!

    I've driven a few Gallardos, they drive very old compared to the strad... And that gearshift.. engine and box feels like it's about to depart from the car on each change. Never driven a manual though, they'd be where I image the fun is.

    .....None of them would sound like a Stradale though...

    DS vs ZF weight distribution

    I've never seen under the back of a non-transaxel GT car. Whats under there? A Diff hung from some point on the chassis with a torque tube heading in, and CV jointed drive shafts coming out left and right? Might there be some weight saving with the transaxel car?

    MC Trofeo Cake

    Great cake and wonderful age: smart enough to know what to do, young enough to still enjoy it, and a little money to do it with as well! Happy birthday!

    Best way to drive DS/CC from cold

    I think a slow uptake is far more damaging than booting it. I've done very little slow traffic, and lots of hard driving, 90% in race mode, track days too. So far my clutch wear is about 1% per 1000 kms
