Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick
shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.

one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this

2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Automatic vs 2012 BMW M3 DCT (BOTH NEW AND STOCK)
**ALSO, CHECK OUT MY OTHER VIDS AND SUBSCRIBE!!** 2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Automatic vs 2012 BMW
M3 SMG (BOTH NEW AND STOCK)
We were a little curious with two cars like this who would put the power to
pavement in straight line drag races. We did try running from a stop, but
only the Mustang could get
traction, the BMW spun like crazy over and over, so we went from a roll to
take traction out of the equation! Both cars are stock, the Mustang 6 speed automatic, and the
BMW has 7 speed DCT transmission, both are V8's, and both make about 400 horsepower. The Mustang sticker price if
$36,xxx, however the M3 is slightly less then DOUBLE the price of the Mustang, over $60,000! More
vids to come, enjoy!
