    I understand the semantic reasons for lumping the 360 and 430 in the same forum; however there are so many material differences beyond just looks that could justify separate forums.

    very different engines - 430 engine tech will generally not help 360 owners and vice Versa

    I guess the chassis and brakes are the common link

    am I the only fellow who finds the grouping unusual?

    do 430 owners also pop in here for 360 content and vice Versa?

    — further point is the idea you click 360 or 430 in your thread header to help the reader.... perhaps this is a precursor to facilitate the separation of threads in a future date?

    I have always found the grouping unusual as well.

    LOL......EVERY shared forum gets these complaints:

    Why are Boxers lumped with TRs
    Why are 458s with 488s
    Then you have the 348 vs 355 slugfest...very entertaining

    The 360/430s are far more alike than different......

    FWIW... I'll cast my vote for separate forums for the 360 and the 430. No biggie that they are lumped together, just would be an improvement for owners of either car. my .02 :)

    360 and 430 very similar, however 458 should not be together with Turbo 488

    360 and 430 engine about as similar as the 458 and 488.

    y'all (or us) will never win trying to group Ferraris, hardly ever is there a clear demarcation with revolutionary change all chassis, style, and driveline. our groupings tend to favor similar stylings over drivetrain.

    I remember years ago, the forum was 355/360, and IIRC, there was a 328/348 forum. I always thought those were both odd bedfellows, but I think now it makes a lot more sense. Granted, I don't know a lot about the 430 except for the floppy taillights. :D

    umm, I don't ever remember that except 20 years ago starting off probably a 8 cylinder and 12 cylinder section. 328 and 348 would have never been together unless 308 in there and 348 and 355 would have never been separate, but 360 could have been included. what you say makes zero sense.

    Maybe 348 had its own. I know that when I found the site, the 355 and 360 were grouped together by themselves. Many years later, I was surprised to see that the 360 was with the 430, and the 355 with the 348.

    Not a big deal. I’ve slept a couple of times since then.

    Better yet is there a way to stop seeing posts in the P&R Section? I come here to escape politics and it seems 75% of new posts are political b.s.

    I don't remember exactly, but the 355 and 360 engines are closer than the 360 and 430, as I said above though we went more with design ques.

    I assume you're looking for Religion discussion in P&R then?

    Should the F430 be grouped with the Honda Civic Type R then? "Cars they couldn't stop designing".

    nope..When I first come to the board I look at the new posts section to find new and interesting ferrari related content and the majority of new posts are neither of those things :) For example.
