That's fine, if all we do is drag race. Come play on an auto x or road course. I love the twisties and for that, I have to have a manual. Dual clutch flappies are faster, but nothing beats a perfect rev matched heel toe into the apex of a corner with a hard power out.

My last two cars I've taken to the drag and auto x have been autos. I will take my manual cobra soon but so far I like manual better.

I'm pretty sure all cobras are manuals so saying manual cobra was overkill haha... But after the older generation is gone manuals are gonna die autos are just so much more convenient and there really isn't a performance difference

A common swap is an auto swap into a cobra. My friend Rodney did this to his whipple termi...made some great launches with that built auto

Now your just shaking the boat for the heck of it. You can not compare a NE to a 2013.

Fact of the matter is some guys prefer a manual, some an auto. Why did you just not name the thread "I have an auto and think I'm better than those that prefer a 5-speed"?

I want the technical answer to why a manual is better than a tuned auto. To me a computer shifting at optimal shift is better than any driver because there is always room for human error. If anyone can answer this with a concise reason I would appreciate it I was trying to explain the concept to my dad.

There is my original post for you

There is no technical answer to that, its preference, both have ups and downs.. just Some people preference it old school, F a computer telling my car when to shift, I'll do the work myself not a computer...plus nothing like lining up 2 stick cars, mod for mod, MUCH MUCH more satisfaction beating someone knowing you can handle your whip a hell of a lot better than they can..

The fact of the matter is autos are faster at shifting and heavier. Manuals are lighter and are more fun to drive. And we can all say dual clutches autos beat out anything anyday. Nothing can compete with a computer shifting. But a manual in a mustang just feels right to me.

*sigh* That is exactly the problem with this generation, just because you can do something does not mean you should. They are clearly two different cars in two different classes.

How often has anyone driven an auto and had to stomp on the gas only to have to wait for the computer to finally decide it wants to down shift? The computer cant see the road ahead of the car, and does not know what the driver wants to do. There is a latency that inherently is just part of having an automatic transmission.

Also 99% of cars with the option of either an auto or 5-speed get better gas mileage out of the 5-speed.

I just bought a new Taurus for my wife,and it has the paddle shifters. Its horrendous. Even after tapping to upshift, or downshift there is a huge delay. Much slower than it would take for any person to shift. So those are really just to make the people feel cool that never learned how to drive a stick. Just like the kids who slam their autos from 1-2-D.

Only exception being the high-end sports cars with near instantaneous paddle shifting. But we are talking mustangs here I assumed, not italian supercars.

Hey, I use 1-2-D


Well only because my tranny is slipping

Comes down to personal preference and use. Drag racing, auto (depending on the car). Road car auto. Fun car, manual. Drifting, manual. Robbing banks, manual (jk with the robbing banks one) just some preferences

I would use an auto for a strictly drag car, and for anything my wife drives as she tends to drag the clutch. For this reason I dont let her drive my mustang.
