In respect to the manettino dial already used on Ferrari cars, the one on the 430 Scuderia is termed a "Racing manettino"; so it is particularly suitable for fast driving on racetracks, offering greater opportunities for electronic control parameter settings. Compared to the F430, the ICE setting has been removed in favour of the
CT setting which only deactivates the traction control, while leaving the stability control engaged.
The manettino dial settings and the relative conditions of use are as follows:
Maximum safety in all conditions,particularly recommended when road surface is wet or slippery.
Guaranteed safety when roadholding is good, best setting for every-day on-the-road use.
maximum performance and stability in perfect road-holding conditions, particularly recommended on racetracks.
this setting turns off the vehicle's traction control system, to allow wheelspin, while maintaining the stability control to ensure a sufficient level of safety is maintained.
with this setting, the traction and stability controls are switched off to allow the driver maximum freedom and driving control on the racetrack. No electronic device acts on the vehicle's stability, except for the E-Diff.
ADAPTABILITY TO DIFFERENT CONDITIONS: DAMPING SEPARATION (SOFT).
According to the specifi c driving conditions and driver preferences the suspension damping control of the 430 Scuderia can be separated from the default logic of the manettino dial using a specific switch located in the tunnel.
This function provides a higher level of comfort over uneven road surfaces (e.g. Nürburgring) or a more relaxed style of driving when on the motorway.
