    Hello! What do you use?

    Personally, I can't stand using automatic, I need to have full control over the car or I'll go nuts. So manual is the way to go for me.

    Its all about manual, and for the same reasons as you, and you get off the starting line easier.

    It had to be take a Swede to write that, huh? Now don't take offense, I'm a Swede too. Though maybe you're not a Swede, but you're name is "Teh Swede" and your location is USA...

    Of course it's about TDU.

    I'm Swedish through heritage. I was asking about real life because someone mentioned shifting with pedals (?). Naturally I was confused.

    I prefer manual, it's kinda necessary for drifting.

    i use manual, half the time i don't realize im using it! i just find it easier cause with some cars they just don't shift when i want them to, so if i do mess up, i got nobody to explain but myself

    Ok i have a couple of drift pics lying around but the brightness is very low :( (the mustang one is REALLY dark for some reason)

    Also if you need more proof of my Auto drift abilities ask ///AMGedup he recently took some drift pics with me on a cruise he just hasn't uploaded them yet.

    Yeah, ofcourse u can take some nice drifting pics. You could do that with your engine off... I was looking for a video. I'm not saying you can't drift, I'd just like to see someone drift as well with auto as with manual.
