only shifting i like doing is in a dual gate or with lightning rods. when i had my caprice 9c1 (automatic) it made it all the way around the odometer and stopped at 13,500 give or take 100. i never seen any manual that can do it. im sry but maybe its just the old man in me even though im only 27. i hate everything about them.

in my opinion, i have more control of my car when its in drive cause i can pay attention to whats around me, plus my maneuvers are a hell of alot better than what anyone could even do on a fast and furious movie. i can go on and on about my issues about stick, i just dont see why they would put one in a gp. in my opinion thats wrong, i mean you never seen grand nationals with them. grand ams i can see having a stick but not a gp or even a bonnie.

I love my automatic for the strip. Especially bracket racing. But manuel is alot of fun on the road course and smaller tuners. My friends SRT-4 is a blast.

Tap shifts are like a video game. And the only hard part about Manual is starting from a stop.
