Automatic vs. Manual: Which Is Better?
One of the most common questions in the auto world is the very basic
question: What's the difference between the automatic and manual
Because I have been asked this question so many times, I figured I'd make
an elaborate video describing the differences between the two.
Thanks for watching!

Grudge Race 2012 Mustang 5.0's auto versus Manual at Famoso Drag Strip
Great DA and exceptional track prep for daytime T&T. Dead stock manual
trans 5.0 with 3.31 diff and OEM 19" tires and pro driver makes some
passes. Slow auto trans 2012, 5.0 GT, camera car with GoPro HD takes a
lap and does some video. And, then, the grudge race, but the manual trans
car red lights big time and still got run down by the auto car. The new

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.

Automatic vs Semi-Automatic vs Manual - Part II
Manual transmissions were the first and most common type of transmission to
be fitted in cars to benefit from different gear ratios between the
respective propulsion of engine and drivetrain. They basically involve
the activation by the driver of the clutch by a foot pedal, the positioning
of gears by a gear stick, and the respective coordination of the fuel
supply through a throttle pedal.
Manual transmissions cost less to manufacture and their reparation in case
of malfunction is less complex and costly than that of automated ones. As
compared with fully automated devices, it also allows for a potential
greater fuel efficiency (albeit not necessarily) as the driver can judge
what especial conditions of driving allow for taller ratios and lower
supply of fuel. The risk of engine breakdown due to over-revving has
additionally been significantly reduced through the fitting of electronic
More significantly, however, the greater advantage of manuals lies in the
substantially different driving experience. Automobiles with manual
gearboxes situate the driver in command of all the important functions of
the vehicle, such as gear selection, amount and duration of clutch
activation, fuel supply, all of whose related combinations allow for an
infinite range of subtle variations of the dynamics of the machine.
Automobile enthusiasts, that is, individuals related to vehicles seeking
the sensorial experience of driving for its own sake rather than as a means
of transport or of merely attempting to move measurably faster, tend to value all the mechanical
operations implied by active driving rather than seeking promised marginal
gains in speed by the delegation of functions to the vehicle's automated
systems. The experience of directly controlling and operating the main
variables and functions of the vehicle and for the driver to be organically
integrated with the whole of the machine is believed to be of greatest
appeal to car enthusiasts.

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!
