Hey guys and gals:

I was crusing around on sounddomain.com and stumbled across this quote:

supratt95 4/30/03, 12:25 pmI might change to 6 spd but turbo automatics are faster :) ... but i might change it anyway b/c sticks are fun and the difference isn't too too much.

:dunno: Maybe I fell asleep and woke up in an alternate universe where automatics are faster? Have I been drinking too much? You tell me...

Thanks

John

You can do a search on it as the topic has been covered tons of times but yes, the Auto Supras are faster on the track than a 6 sp typically.

The general rule is Auto = drag strip, 6sp = autox. Buy the car accordingly.

Just was joking...

Sorry guys,

Maybe I didn't make myself clear on this one. I was just posting something I had found humorous.

Tell that to Marko. Wish I had a dollar for every bike he smashed with his 200+mph auto trans blasts on Chicago expressways...

drag strip = auto <faster>

Daily driver = manual <fun factor>
Ummm, in a lot of places, an auto DD is much better.
I prefer to work out both legs in the gym, instead of just one while driving.

Now at a road course, I would prefer the 6-spd.

I've been ripped, I can take a good beating.

Just been a personal experience w/ my MKII that autos can't keep up with a manual.

Yeah yeah, flame the MKII, but just remember she's a 6MGTE that can more than hold her own.

And a quick apology to all for the lack of searching (which I usually do) and to the Moderator Extraordinaire for my retardedness.

Most people assume autos are alot slower and it's true when you're talking cars like civics or something. Once the power levels get up there, finding a way to control it is more of an issue in which case the auto helps out.

Auto vs. manual thread #85649057


Autos are quicker.
Autos are more consistent.
Autos can be built to be bulletproof.
Autos don't allow missed shifts.
Autos are better in traffic.
Autos are easily rebuildable.
Autos can utilize a transbrake.


6-speeds are better on a road course.
6-speeds are better for people thinking they have superior driving skills.



Do the math.

6-speeds are more fun too. Even the auto guys must agree with this?
