We'll be like Jedis.
Talk like this, we must.
What strikes me as REALLY ironic about that remark is that you have to be old enough to understand that remark (having seen the movie in the theater! ) to know how to drive a stick!

No a 2005 diesel smart, the big 40 hp do their best but dont make it a supercar in terms of acceleration ( makes up for it with fuel economy on my commute, and to me at least it is fun I it's own way).

This is not the transmission (automatic) you are looking for.

Manual transmissions are immune to those mind control games.
Of course that means manuals = Jabba the Hut.

Use the power of the stick, Luke.
I find your lack of shifting......disturbing.

Nah, it's written even in VW the DSG will make you about .2 faster.
With launch control it might be even more and for sure more consistent victories if your drag racing a lot.
I Just extrapolate that if it's .2 faster 0-60, it probably is a little faster 20-80 , 40-60, 40-70, 0-100, and any other measurement of speed. It just shifts so fast there is no way to beat it.
