so whats the deal with the 5 speed gts?? ive raced at least 3 of them them the same as mine and ive taken them all by 1 or more cars. mine is an auto unfortunately (so the wife can drive it) but still taking the 5 spds. do they not know how to drive or do i maybe have different gears?? i havent done any work to it.

I'm guessing the drivers are just inexperienced.

yeah. just listening to them beside me though doesnt seem like they cant drive it. i just dont know if the previous owner changed the gears or what. when i shift it grabs and jump about 10 mph...

it could be alil of both, i know in the older ones when you ordered them there was different gearing options. so you could have factory different gears

sticks are easyer to lose traction off the line which would cause them to be slower, (driver skill) and if they lose to many rpms when they shift so proabably they cant drive

Yea automatic trannies in mustangs ARE ALWAYS BETTER than the manual tranny mustangs. It doesnt surprise me that you took the manual GTs.

quote me on this IT IS EXTREMELY RARE THAT A 5-SPEED GT WILL BEAT AN AUTOMATIC GT.

Its just the way it is stock for stock mod for mod auto gts always spank manual gts and same things with mach 1s.

Look at automatic GTs and mach 1s they have quicker 1/4 mile times then 5-speed GTs and mach 1s.

AUTOMATIC FOR THE WIN!!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!

sticks arent slower than autos...its actually the other way around...there is about a 5-15% loss in power with an auto tranny

The_Mighty_Six troll returns once again with his nonsense jibber jabber.
I agree with you mustangchris01. I believe the OP, if he won the race it's because the drivers of the manual cars couldn't drive. It's a win in my book, nevertheless.

wow this is like attack of the unpopular and imo untrue reasoning of auto is better than manual.
manual= lighter
manual= less parasitic loss (more hp and tq)
manual= last what 100k+?
manual= more fun (well that ones an opinion)
My dads auto in his 95 GT, which hes owned since new and has meticulously maintained it since (and he drives like a grandpa) went out at like 50k

There pretty even but if a manual driver knows how to drive hell win fairly consistently.

That was the same guy that had the topic about his v6 beating some Mach 1's and some GT's about a week ago. Just ignore him. :bigthumbsup

Modern automatics aren't like the slush boxes of the past, when will Ford give us autostick or paddle shifters? Those are really cool and fun to drive
