Well, if you look at the gearing in the 04 goat, it's 3.46's. The gearing in the 04 Vette (non ZO6) are normally 3.08's. The vette will get us in the long run, and we can't really get ahead due to the GTO being heavier. If the vette had 3.46:1 ratio, we'd be watching the vette's tailights all the time.
For road racing, I'd have to agree you can't beat a manual. You can't get the auto to kick down enough in some cases...plus, autos are boring. I'll never trade my manual for an auto on a sports car.
