I noted today that the new BMW/Williams F1 car has an Alcantara covered seat...let's hope they don't have stalling problems too.

Is there some newly-discovered stalling problem with the ZHP engine? I heard that the stalling problems were fixed with the 39.2 software upgrade which came out a few months ago.

But I heard they are running into the 4000 RPM lag/dip in power.















Last year I ran into the near stall issue about 5 or 6 times. Have not noticed it lately. I am now running to the 4000 RPM dip big time, something I had not noticed before.

You may want to get your software updated. I got my car updated to v40 last week and that 4000 RPM dip is gone.

6 months, 5K miles no stalls or problems. New software was downloaded upon delivery after a minor engine misfire. All and all my baby rips to redline silky smoothly and very quickly.

It is on the list for things to get addressed when I take it in for Oil Service 1.

I second that- but I think you meant 04'. Mine was in September. 4700 miles so far, no stalls, one dip at idle however, and a definite 4K power dip. I guess they didn't do the new software for mine? It seems all of you who've had the update no longer experience this.
