I have a manual GR86 and a C8 on order. My knees are still good, and if the Corvette had a manual, I’d order it. Yeah, DCTs and slush boxes are wickedly quick, but there is something very satisfying with rowing your own.
LOL! I was reading until the above statement.I had a corvette that lifted the front end off the ground at 135.
If it was a C2, very plausible.LOL! I was reading until the above statement.
The OP gave reasons that number > zero.There are zero reasons to get this car in an auto, and a million to get it in a manual.
Put down your bible. Ain’t nobody got time for MT monks who drink their own bath water because it’s a more pure bathing experience.Auto sports cars shouldn’t even exist, it’s a literal oxymoron.
The AT itself, extra 4-5mpg
Hmmm...regular auto mode is not something I care for tbh (it loves upshifting to the highest gear for fuel economy and thats not my thing).
False. I literally know a guy without legs that drifts a manual vehicle. Not just drives, but participates in motorsports at a high level.The OP gave reasons that number > zero.
Put down your bible.
It doesn't have to be in the standard AT mode for improved fuel economy, but I can understand your confusion. I was speaking to the gearing advantage, but also that I don't like it upshifting to like 6th gear when I'd prefer to be in say 2nd/3rd around town.Hmmm...
Good for the guy you know. Golf clap.False. I literally know a guy without legs that drifts a manual vehicle. Not just drives, but participates in motorsports at a high level.
