Thats interesting. Is this bad for the Diablo and if yes, why ? Although not the same, I did this with my SL55 always. If I come from a high speed and see a mile away already I have to slow down or stop and there is not much or no traffic behind me, I let it roll in neutral. After about 50000 km I have let the gearbox check for any damage or wear and it was still all brandnew. I've done the same with my prior Mercedes SL which was a 1992 SL600 with very very high mileage of ~450.000 km and never had any problem with that either. That was a very smooth driving and strong quality car by the way.
Now I don't do it all the time with my Diablo but still, pretty frequently on an easy cruising day, as it saves a lot of gas and brakes too as sometimes I even dont need brakes if not too much traffic. Rolling to a traffic light from a long distance for example. Is this really bad ? And if yes, only for the clutch ? As I don't hear or feel any strange noises (yet:-).
