My understanding is that the manuals are a fair bit quicker to 100, but after that the auto will start to haul you in.

The manual is about 8.5 to 100 and the manual just over 9, but they have the same/very close quater mile times. So id say you have him to 100 and he should catch you around the end of the quarter

It also depends on the skill of the manual driver... a poor manual driver will be beaten by an auto because there really isnt much too it now is there.
