    For racing an A4 with a conveter is better.

    yes a shift kit would help along with the convertor and a trans cooler. And NO the stock A4 does not hold up very good under racing conditions. If you plan on taking it to the strip regularly you should plan a better trans into your budget.

    Much more consistent, and the launches with a properly set-up auto can't touch most M6 cars.


    Also...I think your caps lock button is on.

    Unless you just prefer 6sp and are a really good driver, the auto is the way to go for daily driving and the drag strip. We have several late model SS's with minimal mods such as converter, CAI, headers, and tune running 7.7 in the 1/8. Good luck.
