USA1Camaro = "Manual transmission cars can be a PITA in heavy traffic."
I would totally have to disagree. I have OWNED and driven several FAST stick cars and traffic in downtown Houston has never been a problem for me.
What is the extent of your exposure to manul transmissions?
OctaneZ28 = "Up until this point I've chosen automatics because they're better for drag racing, and I've never owned a manual car."
As far as an Auto being quicker for drag racing, I would again have to disagree. I feel Auto's are more consistent and therefore easier to drive AND with all of the rich kids that try to go racing it is better, because I have found that there are actually very FEW good drivers with a stick.
The auto trannies these days are GREAT compared to the stock th350 and powerglides of yesteryear.
