    the first gen v's was a no brainer (only came in manual) but the big boys who know a thing or two will automatically (pun intended) opt for the multi-purpose
    auto, as it's a auto when you need it, and a manual when you want it. a stick will just be a stick,...and you dont want to smack a hornets nest with a short stick, as it's a lose lose endeavor. there are no manual V's in the record books for speed titles. if you want to row all day, buy a little boat. hahhaa

    Actually the fastest standing texas mile V was a manual with 3.73s. I'm sure there are autos that can beat that time, but mod for mod the manuals were getting it in at the event.

    The winning cars at the Texas invitational that just happened were UR Lambos converted to manuals as well. For roll racing and standing mile the manuals are winning it.

    People who appreciate driving go with the manual. People who think they do go with the auto...

    depends what you want to win?

    1/4 mile or full mile?
    1 lap at Laguna Seca or 3 laps at Sebring?
    Gumball 3000 or 24 hours of Le Mans?

    Re: Is AT V accelerate faster than MT V?

    Actually my land just 2 circuits and only 1 drag site.
    If, just if I go drag race with slicks, at same class I think there's nobody could win V wagon, even if it stock.
    Usually we arrange the same class, similar hp or weight-power ratio cars at publish race.
    For example, at publish races, V wagon would only meet other wagons, equal rival could be RS6, E55KT, M5 wagon, Panamera turbo..etc.
    Of course u can go challenge GTR, Lambo, Porsche...etc, but most people would think it's just for fun.
    But after I buy V wagon, I may not often go track race(it's 200miles away from my home), but I think I would go the track to experience V wagon's handling with others.
    If I swap 325mm slicks at rear with stronger sway bars and V wagon's handling exactly better than V sedan, it may not hard to get 1st
    So now I think MT V wagon is good if I running at circuits, also helps better mpg, but AT V wagon is good for daily usage and my wife.
    Most people here do not think American performance cars could with elite chassis and suspension, until ZR1 spawn out at nordscheife.
    Last time a Viper ACR here refresh track fastest record at our race circuit, lead 2nd record by 17 secs just run 2 times, they(these lambo or ferrari owners or racers) said:it's a holy S**T fast machine!!"
    But they still think all caddys are just big, comfortable or luxury car only, they do not think V could beat most sedans at the track.
    Here, in my land, they just love Deutsche cars like audi, bimmer, mercedes, porsche or Japanese cars.

    Maybe it's time to refresh their brain

    It makes perfect sense. No drivetrain loss & it's lighter. The advantage of the faster launch gets eaten up over time.
