I was discussing with a co-worker about our cars. I have a 12 5.0 he has a 12 camaro as convertible. He was telling me he would beat me because he has automatic and I have standard. For the longest time I've been told standard is a few seconds faster then automatic the only thing I've mown about automatics is that they are stronger and last longer. What are your Gus thoughts on this? I've beat many as"s but have no idea if they were automatic or not.
