I think the key was "from a roll" The auto should help out in the 1/4, but from a roll the greater efficency of the stick would help. Not much maybe but maybe enough for him to get you a car length in the 1/4 and the other way around for say 65 to 110 or something like that. The same car with a high stall converter and good tires will destroy an identical manual tranny car in the 1/8 for example.
