    I raced a 2005 automatic v6 with JUST intake spacer with my 2003 5 speed manual 3.8 with exhaust, intake, short shifter. I pulled him like 2 cars off the line, 70+ he OWNED me. the new 4.0 and the new 5 speed automatic transmission together make a formidable challenge for even older GT's

    my dad rented a '05 (auto) for a business trip and we took it out (me driving) and it was slow compared to my stock 03 5 speed. I had heard they are definitely supposed to be faster but it seemed slow.not responsive at all. I bet the 5 speeds are better...and maybe like ^^ he said when is gets up to speed it would prob beat me though

    doubt that you were driving stick in 1962 haha

    I learned how to drive stick before i ever drove a car.

    But yeah id definently take the time to learn to drive stick before i bought an automatic.

    No I was born in 1960 so you are correct I was driving a stick in 1972 and had stick on almost all my cars and trucks until 1997. I really enjoy my Hi performance auto now.

    You're older than me.:eek: Only by a couple weeks though.:p
    But you're right, an auto built right is hard to beat in straight line competition.:thumbup:

    Auto = good for bracket racing. Other than that, I think I would still prefer a stick.

    About 15.

    :confused: i raced a 06 v6 mustang, i think it was an auto, from a roll 3 times on the highway and hung w/ him dead even 2 of the runs and the 3rd i pulled just enough to say i was ahead. and he was the one doing the 3-2-1-go not me. although i might have jumped all three times so my reation to the go was the same if not a tiny bit better then the other guy :rolleyes: (but it wasnt like i went b4 him, just at the same time)

    first 2 was 40-top of 3rd (ended when i would have shifted and he would have pulled but he stopped not me?)

    then the 3rd, we started a lil faster maybe like 70ish and got a small lead and he pulled even w/ me till the top of my 4th.

    i didnt have a spare/jack, and i dont remeber but that might have been when my passanger seat was out

    you can't really "learn" stick until you actually drive something with it :confused:

    maybe you learned the concepts behind it, but that doesn't mean anything

    O maybe i learned to drive a manual 4-wheeler before i learned to drive a car?

    i specifically said "i learned to drive stick before i learned to drive a car", not before i learned to drive something with it.
