Nice job... I'd still take my chances with a manual.

Well from wat I learned in this thread, a manual driver would win, stock vs stock, but it all come down to how many mistakes he will make .

Lol.
Well I was certainly wrong about those 20's.

This just goes to show that we can sit around and pontificate all we want... You just never know the outcome until you do it.

That's AWESOME!!!
Congratulations!

I have an auto but IMO and like many said beforehand if he's a good manual driver he would have won. Congrats on the win!

I'll guess there was not much else to do early in the morning! Glad you folks shared some thoughts on this thread; did have to remove some of the "bickering" type posts.

I've had the same scenario so when it comes down to it autos win definitely you've proven I've proven it so when it comes down to it people don't get so defensive over your opinion when there's 2 guys here now who lived that race and knows who wins..... Opinions don't matter anymore lol

But something that isn't "opinion" is that a manual will always put down slightly better numbers than an auto due to the autos drive line loss, so stock for stock the manual will have a very slight advantage. It all comes down to the manual driver. Nothing wrong with an auto transmission in our cars. Not trying to start another argument with you, just trying to help you out. I will say that the majority of the time an auto can win for the simple fact that at least half of all manual drivers can't shift as quickly as an auto, but that's my opinion. I'm sure if you met up with the "right" manual driver you'd have a different outcome. In the end, auto or manual, our cars kick *** and I'd be happy with either!

I'm convinced by reading all the entries that no one on here knows what the sport mode does. True, it allows you to shift manually if you so desire, BUT sport mode is meant for quick upshifts at optimum rpm. When placed in sport, the car will not shift under heavy acceleration until it gets to the best rpm to shift. It also will not go into overdrive (6th gear) unless shifted manually. If you and the manual tranny guy have the same gears and other accessories, the auto should win because the driver simply has to keep it floored. And yes, it did not come out until the 2013.

Does not always matter.

In a roll race the auto will loose almost every time. They fall on there face up top.

Manual has more hp than auto. Not sure why, or how much but it does.

Maybe someone has some info to back this up

No, the engine has the same hp at the crank. Autos have more drivetrain losses on the way to the wheels. I was thinking auto would win because of driver skill issues.
