    5spd or auto for track?

    Would you use the 5spd or auto for the track? I bought an auto car for parts but, now am thinking of turning it into a drag car instead of my 89 5speed. Whatta think?

    Use an auto with all the lentech parts you can afford. Use enough stall for a good hard launch. I am going from a 2000 to a 2800 stall.

    i think stick is more of a rush...but auto has more potential to get you down the quarter faster

    An auto is definatly the fastest in drag racing. For road racing a manual trans is preferred.

    I'm lucky to own one of each of these beauties, but I can tell you the only way the AOD would ever beat the 5speed in any race is if you missed a shift or two with the standard trans. The 5speeds are rarer and are a blast to drive, but the AOD is mighty nice too, I still haven't decided which one I like the best, that's probably why I can't bring myself to sell either one. Auto or 5speed these are one fine, fun car....
