Automatic Vs Manuel 1/4 times?

I know I saw 13.00 stock listed in Car and Driver can anyone confirm this for the Manual transmission SS stock? What about the Automatic 1/4 times? Anyone been to the track yet?

just because C & D says it runs a certain time...doesn't mean everyone's gonna run to the track and get those times.

If I remember correctly, the official times listed have the A6 being slightly faster 1/4 mile.

people are claiming track times from 12.9 to 13.8 running stock everything... its kind of frustrating. i wish there was a smaller window of variability

They're just #'s, who cares?....that's how it always is. Too many variables come into play. Track conditions, driver etc...especially on a new car (with not that many people running drag radials yet).

I think the auto actually is much slower than the manual, but I prefer auto for city driving.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
