i know dct has some advantage but some people make it out to more that it really is. I know i can take higher hp cars i have raced many but didn't have a chance to take any videos. But when you race someone on the street do you go out and ask if their manual or auto or just run them because its fun to do. We have had this talk a few times, it probably get deleted in the older thread when we were going at it before with the Ess guys.
