This 348 is really doing my head in. Tonight the clutch started slipping. It's less than 2,000km old! And I know it's not my driving as I had the 355 for 20,000km on the same clutch, and my Esprit clutches last 35,000+km and as we all know, clutches on turbo cars have a hard life.

I am really starting to get pissed with it. At least I found why it was only revving to 5,700rpm - the idiotic previous owner installed a rev limiter - WTF? Couldn't he trust himself with not blowing up the engine??
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

Did someone spill their morning coffee on it while putting it back together?

a clutch can be killed in 100 yards if abused enough. I physically cringe when I see salesmen shunting the cars around in showrooms, or at paintshops etc..

I don't even let tow trucks drive them on... it's push or winch only.

WTF, REV limiter????  :doh:
