i like manual tranys just for the fact that i race alot and if i had an auto i would lose alot more races becase you cant down shift the same and i am a fan of double clutching.

Glad to see you feel better.

Top fuel cars do not run trannys now. They did for a while years back. They are direct drive with slipper clutches now. About a 3.00 or 3.20 rear gear.

Thanks.

the only reason i like the auto is cause when your cruising smoking a ciggarette you have control of your right hand much easier for a smoker...also a good auto thats been tweaked inside will smoke em with the best of em..just my opinions,
