OMG I Hate Kids.

I'm sitting in study hall just chillin right? Well this kid I know bought a 90 something Neon R/T (Pictured Below).



So his car is a stick and all he F'ing does is talk crap on automatics. I'm really tired of this "Automatics Suck" mindset.

I replied with "My car would smack you" (I was pissed).

He then said "So?"

I said "Then why are you talking *****?"

He then went on to brag about who automatics make your car slower because it drops HP/TQ, but yet didn't know why so I had to inform him.

These kids are really really pissing me off, I'm only a month or 2 away from the GTA getting out from hibernation. Then we'll see if automatics suck. Grrrrr!

I have 3 points to make:
1: That is one fugly car.
__________
2:There are some really fast Automatic cars. I can't think of any but that's not the point lol.
__________
3: Most teens are stupid
__________

actually 4:
He made no sense saying that Automatics make you car slower, and then going on to admit that your auto was faster than his gearbox.

Everyone used to ask me why I bought an automatic when I had my IROC in high school. I would have bought the stick had it come with the 5.7.

I just remembered, one of my close friends in high school was a die-hard Mopar guy. He had an early 90's Dakota that was a 2wd, 4cyl and 5 speed. It was a dog, but he rowed through the gears like it was some sort of monster. He was going to trade it in on a 98/99 Neon R/T (like the one in the picture). Oh, the memories...

Hmm, didn't they give us a TapShift to make up for the difference? (If there is one)

The automatics are quicker, not faster.

In the end, it's negligible. Just get whatever you enjoy driving more.
