I went 10.89 on a 100% stock trans in a 4000 pound car.
A built trans and converter and tune are awesome for sure, but to say you can't do it without one is a bit naive. You can still never shift as fast as an auto no matter what.
When you power shift that little bit of time where the clutch is disengaged....the auto is still hooked up to the tires and pulling. The stick is not.
Really, its a widely known fact that EVERYBODY who's ANYBODY in racing knows....why do we keep having people trying to debate this?
All they are doing is telling everybody that they don't know WTF they are talking about.
Do yourself a favor, Spend some time at the track and see what ALL the fast cars are running....I'm not talking 13 sec cars, I mean fast cars 10.0 and below....guys who know what time it is....every one of them will be an auto. EVERY ONE.
