Considering I am not a racer and never will be, automatic for pretty much anything but a serious american muscle car. If I manage to get the SRT8 I want it will obviously be a manual but let's face it, automatic is just better. Whoever claimed it is cheaper insurance-wise, it is not. You're more likely to get in an accident with manual, not necessarily because of your driving, but because of others. You would not believe the number of accidents caused by people being to close to a manual on a hill, they drift back some when they release the brake, and smash into the front of the idiot.

So yeah. And to all you "racers" out there, shut it. For those of you actually going out to strips or tracks, good on you. For all of you out there with your mom's car or a '98 Civic ricer...shut the hell up please. You people irritate the crap out of me. Most of you still are under the impression that your 250 dollar exhaust system that is loud as shit is better than my silent one. News flash, louder does not necessarily mean better with the exhaust.

doesnt matter..... and when it comes to racing auto actually has the advantage if its from the launch(auto will take the launch on a manual and the advantage of nver miss shift) believe it or not, manual has the advantage on roll on races....but either way im fine wid both


uhhh wrong....you cant launch as good on automatic as you can manual, your thinking of someone who doesnt really know how to drive yet....manual>auto when it comes to racing (not just drag racing but autoxing and drifting) yes automatic will never miss shift but if youve driven manual and automatic be4 then you will know that automatic shifts A LOT slower than you can in a manual...soo...just letting you know..not to be an a$$ (this excludes a tt supra,fd and i think one more car im forgetting) maybe if you ran a auto ecu in your manual probably will be faster (its somewhat been proven lol) yah....i need to stop drinking already...wayy too early..lol


uhhh...... i dont know about u but i can launch way better in a auto then manual...... and hell no auto shifts nver slow u just nver drove a really good one lol just that theres not much good ones out there,


uhmm well i used to work at subaru...dont tell me auto is faster, the 5 speed wrx's are faster than auto wrx's

the cars taht are auto and shift fast are the new hella expensive cars, like the new gtr (paddle shifting) the new evo (paddle shifting) but seriously automatic is slower for most tuner/import cars try flooring a automatic, and when it changes gears notice the loss in speed and revs but in manual you CAN speedshift (noticed i cap CAN, cause its really bad for your tranny)

This is the fact about auto and manual:
1. Manual is faster then auto cuz uses less time to shift then a auto
2. Auto for city-life style / Manual for country-life style
A. Reasons why?
1. Auto for city cause of trafic and less hassle of shifting like crazy
2. Manual for country cause of the less trafic and the space it has for you to speed up
