    At Santa Pod 1/4 raceway a remapped Automatic 2.8 Turbo Elite beat me by 0.2 seconds (when I had my Stage 1 remap at 305 BHP / 389 Lbft)

    So they are faster than manuals

    Yes, my first auto was a Mk1 Column change Cortina, that's where I learnt to drive one left foot on brake, right foot on throttle. Even unmodified (enginewise) if you hold mine on the footbrake as the lights go amber and right foot the turbo till it starts to whistle it shifts pdq.
    Can have loads of fun with an auto, I prefer rwd when possible though.
