My 2017 gt PP is my first Mustang and it's a stick. I owned a Superformance Cobra a while back and it had a Tremec in it. After a few pulls with the Mustang I hated the transmission so I installed a Barton Short Throw Shifter and changed the transmission fluid to Ravenol. The difference is significant and I highly recommend the Barton setup.Same here, couldn't stand the cheap look of the stock shifter. That was the first mod I did on my Mach 1. the WM cue ball is a solid piece!
I see it the other way around. If you drive a manual everyday, then you get used to it, and are more prepared for those "OH SCHIT" incidents where response with the transmission is instinctive, and not thought about. Then when you drive your automatic, it doesn't matter if your left foot goes for a clutch that isn't there.I have this logic. If I drive car everyday then I take Automatic, but if I drive car rarely (weekends etc) then I prefer manual.
Holy schidt! That was a wild ride.Hey, this guy does ok with a manual in traffic. And, I’m not sure the A10 is any faster than him shifting. Enjoy the ride.
Because we are simple creatures and long for tribal belonging, and to feel like we made the "right" choice.A thread with a question like this could make sense if someone was considering which transmission to buy, and wanted input on the factors that people considered when making their decision, but the "Mine's better!" "No MINE'S better!" exchanges that this devolves into is pointless. I don't understand how what one person buys could matter to anyone else in the least.
As the OP, I'm going to chime in here. Certainly we want to know what others are doing, because yes, we want to feel "right" or at the very least get confirmation that we didn't make a bad choice. However, my point of starting this thread was to explain my motivations for choosing a 6spd manual, while also wanting to hear from those who chose autos as to why they did.....Because we are simple creatures and long for tribal belonging, and to feel like we made the "right" choice.
For me, I just pick what's more fun for me. I have an automatic daily so I had no reason to double up on automatics.
