A tenth of a second wouldn't really affect my decision either way. I mean, if the manual was proven to be faster I would still get the automatic.

+1 to keeping both hands on the steering wheel when I'm going fast through a turn.
Agree, 0.1s is insignificant.

Shifting mid corner isn't what they teach in driving school as the car's balance will suffer. Shift mid corner going fast turn, a spin is in the cards.
