I''ll hafta rewatch these when I get home. This is from some Best Motoring tape, but I haven't seen this one (yet).

All of these guys are race drivers to some extent, although I believe only 2 of them (the ones driving the MT M3 and 360) are of an international caliber.

I saw some shuffle-steering going on somewhere in there... my instructor reamed me but good for that on the track last weekend. :yikes:

Welp, I rewatched the video, and unfortunately it ends before all the drivers give their commentaries at the end. I may have to go track down the tape and watch the whole thing.

Every test that's ever been done has manual beating SMG
Exactly what are you reffering to?

Wasn't it the German magazine "Auto Motor und Sport" that did a Nurburging test and got the same time with both cars? These are professional drivers, and I wouldn't expect either to be faster. 36/100ths is well within the margin of error.

Think about it, does it make any sense that either would be faster with a pro driving?

SMG allows pro shifts EVERY time. I would bet that you would be faster with SMG on a track.

okay, I should have said any test has shown stick beating or matching SMG. Shahin claimed that SMG is faster than stick. There has been no test that has shown that.
