Agreed 100%!!!!!!


As for automatics in drag racing, it is indeed more consistent however, I much prefer the direct control of a manual transmission (even if it may be slower in some cases).

Are you talking about BMW's "SMG" or are you talking about a true sequential manual gearbox used on race cars?

Well...

I still prefer 3 pedals so...

I'd prefer an SMG with 3 pedals (obviously the clutch is for launching and heel-toe shifting).

Other than that, 2 pedals feels wrong

No doubt, a true manual is always preferred, as it brings out the real pleasure of driving. Although i'm not that great with manual, i like the feel of smg.

Wth! I'll go with either or. For all those saying auto are lazy and manuals are an inconvience should really look at yourselves in the mirror and say no to this argument and Just DRIVE! Really I really don't care whether i have to downshift or lazily press the brakes. I just want to be fast at the corners and come out alive!

Personally, I go for Manual just because its more fun to drive and since I want to use my Daily on the track it'd be easier to just get a manual.

Currently I live in a place with a lot of hills, so an auto makes it easier goin' up those suckers. Dunno how I'd do in a Manual.

Dude, after you get used to holding a clutch in place, that should be no problem at all. I don't cower every time I encounter steep slopes anymore. Sure, maybe the first month of driving its OK, but not after getting used to driving

And besides, its fun to scare traffic on an uphill traffic light

Haha, it's not hard...like....I could do it, but I preferred not to because I'd always get some a-hole who'd get right on my bumper, so I'd have to floor it to make sure the car didn't roll back any. -_-

Yeah, I blame the douches that drive their automatics while multitasking

Which reminds me.. Some idiot in a Lexus RX crossover SUV hit the rear of my Subaru wagon about a month ago at a stoplight. I felt a slight "thump" (and heard a somewhat loud "BANG") behind me. I wasn't rolling back. Thank goodness I don't care much for cosmetic damage. The damage was actually invisible.
