If you are exclusively a straight-line drag racing knuckledr...um...er...ethusiast, then the auto would be alright for you.

If you like to take an active part in driving your car as apposed to just pointing it, then definitely get the 6-speed.

Remember, an automatic cannot anticipate your next move...only react.

I cut 1.78's in my M6. How many autos can say that. I know I'm "modded", but even when it was stock it was 1.85's - 1.90.
Auto's have less HP/TQ and more torque management.
Give me a stock 05 auto, with a 3600 stall, drag radials, and I will show you a 1.6 short time!

Then you need to drive my car and everyone else I've met with the M6 around here. You're lucky on stock tires to do better than a 2.10 with a M6. Where as an auto can do 1.85-1.90 all day on stockers. And appx. for each tenth you do better in the 60' is a good .15 to .2 better in the 1/4. That is why I seem to be in my area seeing stock M6's struggle to do better than 13.30-13.40's and the autos are 13.00-13.10's all day. Also the M6 is more dependent on traction when shifting gears compared to an auto. Although an M6 will usually trap higher. Also in the auto you lock it in 3rd.
