theoritical question about performance

Some bench racing talk brought up which car on the street would out perform the other. A manual 3:73 car with adequate driver or an automatic 5.0 ?
Some bets riding on the majority outcome.

Absolutely stock, given competent performance by both pilots, the MT 3.73 car will win every time.

Absolutely stock on freezing pavement in February, with a grand total of about 200 kilometers experience with the car, I ripped off 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and the quarter somewhere in the low 13s, (I don't recall exactly that data point), according to my datalogger. To say that I was pleasantly surprised, given the conditions and a tight new motor, would be an understatement. This with a loaded BBP car.

The auto's factory tuning is pretty soft but, its consistency and reduction in troublesome wheelhop are its main advantages.

Once properly tuned, it's a different story altogether.

Prob Gina get moved to general . But I think a 6mt will launch way harder and just win just from the 60 ft time it will put out
