i wish i had a 6spd; i know they arent as fast, but that's okay with me, i'd just have more fun driving if it was a stick, but i still smile when i hit the go fast pedal regardless

Personally I have no interest in trying to launch a truck like this with a manual, then rowing your boat on each shift...not to mention the issues with clutches, TOBs etc...

or its a really shitty auto...the Lightning is the only automatic performance vehicle Ive driven that the trans didnt drive me insane (granted I have not driven any of the newer slush boxes like the new GT has). Even in cars with a tune I HATED the auto in the mach1s/older GTs

Because nobody in the world can shift as quick as an automatic can.

Sure sticks are fun.
An at a certain power level its a mute point either auto or manual.

But once you get into the high Horsepower range, there is nobody that would choose a stick over an automatic in any type of competition.

All the fastest rides in the world are Auto's.

For me it depends on the vehicle. I wouldn't want to own a truck with a manual. Rowing the gears with long, long throws has no appeal to me.

However, if were talking about an 03-04 Cobra, GT500, Corvette, Camero, or a GTO. A manual transmission would be a must.
