I have manual in my car it is great to pass slower people on the freeway! drop it into third and step on it! but cars with the paddle shifters could be the best of both worlds!? just like a manual or leave it auto and no clutch so no stalling

lol i do the same thing. i learned driving on a manual transmission and drove with it for more than 3 years and now my dad forces me to drive the automatic and i enjoyed it since its less hassle in heavily congested streets. anyway, when i drive i leave my hand on the shift nob hahaha! its so funny :P

oh yeah! one more good thing about an automatic! YOU CAN HOLD YOUR GIRL'S HAND WHILE YOU DRIVE WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT SHIFTING! Thats Sick!!! hahaha

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)



im a racer and if i know something it depends on the racer.......and yea i can launch better in an auto and auto's arent slow....if we were running 2 stock accord/integra etc and u take the stick and i'll take auto i guarentee i will take you

I guarantee that you wont. If you did know anything about racing then you would know that there is more of a power train loss with an auto thought the torque converter then there is with an manual. You can probably launch better in an auto cause all you do is hold the brake and gas together. It takes skill to launch a manual and I guess thats skill you dont have.
