They usually test it both in full auto and active. Then they avg the 2.Levitron said:I wonder how they tested the automatic. Did they use Activematic, or did they just drove it with the normal automatic?
what you have to take into account is shift times as well, the ATX will always shift slower than anyone that knows how to drive an MTX in a stock car, and there is also an inherently higher loss of power through the drivetrain in an ATX.gtgray said:I would guess that most of the advantage the manual would have would in the 0-60 and quarter mile times would be at launch.. after that I think there would be much smaller differences. In real traffic, the acceleration would be much closer.
