    New to this forum. Wondering if anyone has suggestions? My 2000 F1 360 started skipping 1st in paddle or auto when I shift gears and goes directly to 2nd. All the other shifts are fine. F1 Oil level and fuses seem fine. Is this an indication of clutch wear?

    When my 360 needed a clutch it would pop into nuetral between any gear.
    Are you sure your not in the low traction mode? It will always start in 2nd if you are.

    You may have activated your "low grip". The traction control will automatically skip 1st in either auto or sport mode.

    Victor- Do it quickly, too. Nothing wears out a clutch quicker than low grip mode and 2nd gear starts. If low grip mode is selected, you will geat a warning light that shows a car skidding.

    Victor, you might also think about reading the manual! LOL! Just giving you a hard time...hell, it probably would not have even told you about that anyway! I wish I had a Ferrari in the garage but just have to do with a bunch of Porsche's for the time being... someday soon I will have a Ferrari though...
