yeah high stall is the go, pain 2 drive around normal with, but at the drags ive seen stalled up autos take the piss out of manuals many of times with ease, but manual a s**t load more fun.

hi-stall or not, auto's will be slower than manuals because of gear ratios. Thats not to say an auto cant beat a manual as they are not as easy to drive.

oh, and maybe this should go in the driveline workshop instead of I6
