nope.


1. lights, the Auto has the launch control, and will get off the line quicker, and it hits 60 quicker because of how they timed the shift pts.


2. with Drag the Auto will just outshift the manual, unless you dont like your car and powershift the shit out of it.

and honestly id rather loose in an auto than win damaging my car.

Actually, the manual car will shift into second just before 60 (about 55), and the auto shifts into third at 66, which is why the auto runs much better to 60mph. And in the quarter the manual uses third gear through the 1/4 mile (to 114 mph), while the auto shifts into 4th gear at about 102. This is why the auto has a slight edge, it is geared more aggressively for acceleration than the manual. Don't ask me why they did that, I would think you could dedicate 4 gears to the 1/4 mile run with a 6 speed manual tranny, and still have plenty of room for overdrive, but oh well. They really geared this thing to keep revs low to help fuel economy I suppose.

As for the calculator, the manual car will shift only twice (1-2, 2-3) in the 1/4.

I guess 4.5 auto, 4.8 manual
12.9 auto, 13.0 manual, both at 108 mph



You really think the SS manual will do 13 flat in the 1/4. 1320 feet?

I would dirty my diaper if it did. More like 13.5 IMO. With me driving. Which is a good thing. My first car@17 was a 1971 LT1 Chevelle with an m-22, and I could speed shift like a pro in 2 weeks.

Once again depends what type of racing you are doing ie not drag racing. Wow do you not realize that outside north america drag racing isn't even considered when auto racing is mentioned. I'm talking about alms you know laguna seca road atlanta, heel-toe shifting and throttle burps come on think outside of the one type of racing you do.
