    Yes but for the GT500 it is easy to make power. They are running what, 8's already?

    Add boost to any V8 and they make power lol... but imo the Ford modular motors have it right, Overhead Valves... the new 5.0 motor they came out with is great for what it is!

    For this car to run a 9 with a 6 speed it will need power.. Manual cars do not ET like an Auto does! They take more mph to do the same ET... For example, ive seen a car with a 124 trap run a 10.64... most fast cars out there run Auto's....they are more consistent and take out driver error...

    Except Audi's 4.2 lol. It depends on many factory, not all V8's are created equal.

    Manuals usually get a better MPH because they are more efficient. It is harder to get a good ET out of them but not like they can't. They just need a good driver. For example, if a Z06 had an Auto it would not run 10's stock like it has.

    It would be more consistent, sure, but a properly driven manual can launch harder because the stall limitation hurts the auto's capability and it also sucks power.

    actually you are really incorrect. We have a handicapped guy with only his left arm that has an auto c6 z06 and it runs 10.90s at 123 all day c4 tranny only

    Auto's will get a better ET damn near everytime.. you just need a proper converter for it...

    You are saying a stock C6 Z06 is running 10.90's on just a C4 auto trans? Let me see.

    The trap speed clearly shows it is less efficient though, just easier to launch, not incorrect at all.

    Slower MPH, more consistent ET. A better driver in a manual can beat an equal auto. You can't rev an auto as high as the line. If it is a turbo car it can build boost with an auto at the line which is another area it has an advantage but it still isn't as efficient as a manual and will trap lower despite offering more consistency.

    Like i said before, an auto will ET better but trap lower because like you said its not as efficient...

    The only time id say an auto would be slower than a manual tranny would be conventional auto vs Lenco... my co-worker was running 6.80's@198-199 in is Nostalgia altered dragster with a th400, put in the lenco and his new best is 6.65@204....it takes alot more adjusting but it is faster... being able to lock it 1:1 uptop helps with the mph!

    yes the guy has one arm. there is no videos of it i dont think! but it has only a tranny swap. and i might have hand control gas pedal. but 100% bone stock. and of course it wont trap as high but another c6 z06 the same day only trapped 125 so big whoop and he was in the mid 11s

    An auto won't always ET better, that is the point. It takes a lot of skill to use the manual properly.

    If there is no proof then I can't take it seriously.

    Different drivers with different transmissions but the manual still trapped higher? Interesting Click here to enlarge

    No no, we won't go down that route. We will have a site to encompass all other makes though.
