Is it still considered being p-whipped if he screams, "Please, Mistress!" before the leather comes down?

Manual trannies should be in a race class all their own. The consistency factor takes A LOT of skill. Its fairly simple to put a kid in the drivers seat at the track and when the light hits they stomp the gas. Not much skill involved but just practicing the tree is ALL thats needed. Not bashing autos, because if I was a racing fanatic, obviously autos are the way to go. If I raced and missed a gear, I wouldnt say, "If I hadnt missed that gear, it'd be your ass!" It'd be like, "I missed a gear, the race was over when I did that. Lets race again." But I'll stand by my words and say manuals should have their own class due to the amount of variables and skill involved.

I love manual as it IS more fun to me!

I have been searching through the forum all day and have not found a concrete answer on if the manual or the auto is faster. My wife wants to drive the car sometimes but doesn't know how to drive stick. This means if I get the manual she will learn in the camaro ss :/ Based off your experiences is the auto or manual faster. This will be my last opportunity to buy a car so I want to make sure I make the right decision. All opinions are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Which transmission did you decide to go with? Either is a great choice and to have an auto will definitely satisfy your wife's needs as well. Please post pictures on which one you decided. On that note, welcome to the Camaro family!

i would try and stay away from the Edelbrock EForce Superchargers, they are very heavy and took two people to lift it into my buddies car. I would lean more toward magnuson superchargers a little pricey but very worth it.

Iím considering the purchase of a 2SS, and I just rented a 2012 Automatic model in Las Vegas last week. It was brand new, with a manufacturing date of 5/12, and had only 5 miles on the clock. We put 1,800 miles on it over 9 days with a trip through Utah and Arizona. I have extensive manual transmission experience, and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by the paddle shifting in manual mode. This car has true paddle shifters vs. the buttons on the 2011 model, and the shifts seemed much quicker and smoother than on the older models. On twisty roads with the paddle shifter youíre actually able to achieve a smooth downshift while braking for a corner. While itís not quite as smooth as a properly executed heel and toe downshift with a manual gear box, it is very close, and itís a whole lot easier to perform. Iíve driven lots of cars with manumatic transmissions, and this is the first one that could actually produce smooth downshifts. It really was great fun to drive.

If I get a Camaro Iíll probably still opt for a manual car, as Iíd hate to leave 26 hp on the table, but if it werenít for that I might have a tough decision to make.

And the bonus to that is coming out to a cool car in summer and a warm car in winter if you leave the ac/heat on.

In your case the Auto is the best choice and with a Tune, vararam Cold Air Intake, & Borla Atak Catback, It'll be a lot more snappy

-optional dual-mode exhaust system
-Chevy MyLink 7'' TouchScreen
-Stabilizer bars with drop links repositioned outboard of the control arms
