  2. 1996 Ford Taurus GL. 4 speed automatic transmission. Manual mode consists of being able to select from first or second gear to go with. Can't really say much about it, downshifts move the engine into a nice sounding bit of the powerband, but don't illicit much increase in forward velocity. This is probably due more to a lack of absolute power than anything. I love autos, i would never willingly choose a traditional manual gearbox, but a nice DSG or similar setup wouldn't be unwelcome.
  3. have you ever driven a manual?

    if not, youre disallowed to comment on any further transmission topics.
  5. manual x2
    auto x1
  6. No. But i do want to learn. ;_;
  7. It's seriously allot more fun to drive a manual then an auto.

    A DSG would be nice too though <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  8. Yeah, DSG i could live with.
  9. 1976 camaro. its a POS but i love it, and im restoring it. its an auto but it doesnt really work. so i shift it manually but with no clutch. the nice thing is the second i drop it into 1st it is in first. id do anythign for it to be a manual.

    1999 cougar. auto. boring. the prob is i know how to drive a manual but dont have a manual car... so it sucks. personally i love its interior and it can turn like no other. but its slow.
  10. Tiptronic 4 speed


    doesnt shift fast enough when in tiptronic and often shifts inneficiently when on auto.
  11. my Scooby is an automatic, & my Camaro is a 5 speed manual.
  12. no car. I was gonna get a 5spd manual, but it didn't work out
  13. 5 speed triptronic auto
  14. tiptronic mazda 3 sport gt
  15. Wilson Preselector.

    No, not really. I just wish I could say that.

  16. Fawlty Towers FTW.

    "I know nuuuuting."
  17. 5 speed manual. Not to gloat, but it's the best shift action of any manual I've driven (including Porsche, BMW, etc.), by far. It's very crisp, and every shift motion is a 90 degree angle. The short throw shifter and stiff bushings I installed just add to what was already and amazing gear shift. This is not because I'm used to the car, and have gotten used to it. Even Car and Driver described it as Porsche-like with it's clear gate, and communication. I prefer it much above the Porsche's. On top of that, the clutch action is very light, and communicative as well. No hydraulic stuff here. No cables for the shift linkage either.

    I use my car's transmission as the base of comparison for all other manual transmissions. So far, all have failed.
  18. 3 out of 4 are manual but the daily driver is an auto.
  19. All the cars I owned were manual, except 2 cars.
  20. You need to get in a manual car, and learn. Do it today. Seriously. At any cost.
