It's not just off the line, it's overall speed. Also the A10 is faster around a road course for all you turny fuckbois.

And if you don't care about speed, why did you buy a 400+ hp car?
Oh shit! Your a Mass hole!?! Should have lead with that.... there’s no mountain roads there... I was born in NH, got out soon as I could.

I understand you guys drive fast in Mass, but out here in Cali it’s next level.

My dad who is a life long trucker in the NY/NE area after his visit.

Please refer to this thread, all you need to know.

https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/1-4-mile-fast-list-3-0.153049/

The top 24 are all auto, and only 2 out of the top 30 are manuals.

You guys must realllly have alot of fun with those manuals for all the slow that comes with them.
All the slow that comes with doing your own shifting is still more satisfying than all the fast that having somebody else work out your shifting for you can give you. At any power level.

Feel free to drive right past me in any competitive driving environment you care to name. Just keep in mind that in otherwise identical cars it won't be you beating me.

Well I have three vehicles and they are all manuals. So One can guess what my opinion is. If one has to drive regularly in rush hour traffic then manuals can be a drag. On certain vehicle types I prefer an automatic but a Mustang isn’t one of them.

Everyone, and everything. Time itself. Death. The sunrise/sunset.

Try that in a manual!

Until it rains, or it snows, or the road surface is a little rough, or it's icy, or it's too cold out, or there's just a little oil/sand/a single ill-placed leaf...
The only thing I race is my GPS ETA.... the other day it said 2 hours up to Mt Wilson... I made it in 1.5... 🏁 chicken dinner

The traffic argument is trivial with these newer mustangs. Easiest manuals ever. My wife's Honda puts me to sleep but I don't think it's just the auto transmission. Civic SI also had me opening junk mail while waiting for 2nd gear to rev out.

Is your job similar to a drive-thru window because you have people asking questions all day interrupting your wendy's frosty chill time? otherwise, I cannot agree.

I know the struggles, I work in a dept that no one understands and assumes I’m IT...
My title has 'IT' in it, but I work on the management and business development side. I still have to hold some hands more than I'd like on the daily though...
