you know what, if you guys with auto's spent that money on a 3.9 diff, shift kit and maybe a 3000 high stall your auto would piss all over the manuals, i havent even got a high stall yet and i make guys with manuals look like s**t?? autos are the way to go in my oppinion

autos seem to be the go cause alot of very fast drag cars run autos not manuals, you just have to set em up properly. and spend that bit of coin here and there.

i guess with a high stall kit it'd be pretty easy to turn it off and on right? like if some guy's trying to be a green light jockey next to u, u could just flick the switch?

dont think you can do that!
unlike the electronic shift kit the high stally replaces your stock stall convertor.

theres no way you could switch it on or off, your tranny wouldnt work without it!

i f**k hate the auto as i dont have any "real" control over the car. Like i mean yeah in the wet if i give her hell she "steps" out when changing gears, yet with a manual i would a LOT more control overf how much and when the power is applied, plus then u dont have as many idle issues. Basically as soon as i get back from my trip in the mid of next year i will be saving every little penny i have to get a manual kicking in the beast :lol:
