    manual.

    it's good for drifting because when you're in the middle of a long drift and ur losing some speed and all of a sudden it downshifts...more often then not you'll spin

    I love using manual. Especially when playing against human opponents that use automatics. I like being able to be neck to neck with someone, and then dropping gears, and taking off after coming out of a turn, when they can't.

    Those are some pretty big time spreads. It takes a while to get used to manual, but once you get it down it becomes second nature. I don't even think about it, I just do it. My manual times are faster than my auto times.

    I like the manual because it gives me more control during braking. I can shift down and it allows me to control the braking. almost like abs
    :) :D

    Just changed over to racing w/ a manual tranny after 10+ years of doing it with an auto - it may be hard, but I'm slowly getting used to it.

    I used to always use an automatic cause I was lazy. It was just easier to let the car shift for me while I concentrated on driving. But in the past while, I've been driving a manual a lot more. It really allows me to have better control over the power, and it didn't take me long to get used to downshifting while braking. So manual for me.

    Manual because you can get that tiny bit faster, plus it's more interesting and challenging. In Auto the AI shifts at the same moment for all cars, but in reality they can be driven faster by delaying or accelerating the gear shifts.
