Just lift off the throttle a hair
I have driven with the guy from the Maserati factory and he said to me to drive in it sport mode as much as possible because it is easier on the clutch. You can feel this when driving in normal mode, the stop and go transition from first gear is the most evident because the clutch will disengage itself and engage itself.
While in sport mode, you will feel the clutch engage much faster and thats what you want to do, because if you keep on riding the clutch, you will have to replace the clutch very soon, and thats not a cheap service.
The guy from the factory also suggested that when you are at a stop, to let traffic go first, dont do a lil creep and then stop and then a lil creep again, because this wheres out the clutch more than anything.
When driving with these special transmissions, I have found that it smooths the shifting when you let off the throttle when you are just about to shift the gears and this usually does it. You know just think of lifting up your big toe when you are shifting....
I have a 06 Nero Carbonio with black interior with red piping it looks good.
