Default 2005 manual tc vs 2011 auto tc who will win?

Who would win a race if it was a 2005 tc with manual transmission vs 2011 tc with automatic?

2011 has more hp but manuals can shift faster......

More than likely the 05 manual
The 11 tC has more horsepower but weighs more

And again it does depend on the drivers

no. all you can do is to slam the pedal to the floor, and hope that he screws up...

lemme guess.. u got the 2011 and ur buddy or some1 has a 2005... and u wana no wat u can do to win... or vis vera... if they are both stock and the guy driving the 5 speed and shift at the rite times and not miss and they will win. its lighter and they can run it alot harder... also the 2011 auto really start to lose it as soon as they hit 80 and has slow accel from then on... now if there are any mods well then it just all depends... so ya id give it to the 5 speed... 19 more hp isnt guna win it for the auto's

If u ant infantry... u ant sht!!!!

Pretty sure you can only turn of traction control for the first 30mph anyways
