The A8 is absolutly much better for racing, but cruising and daily driving in minimal traffic the manual is so much more fun for me. That can get a little tiresome, but I think it is still worth the enjoyment of rowing your own. 216. It's not a manual in anyway though. Does anyone have any regrets getting a manual over an automatic? Also, how does one learn to drive a manual when they don't have any friends/co-workers that know how to? Manual’s are fun but at the end of the day, the A8 is solid and a better transmission IMO. The RPM constantly jumps around based on your throttle position, so that you are always at the best RPM. A Subreddit for the people who love Dodge Challengers! I live in Sacramento California and the traffic here is heavy during commute times.
An automatic Challenger Scat Pack weighs just 7.5 pounds more than one with a manual: 4,239.8 pounds versus 4,232.3 pounds.
Edit, didn’t proof read. Too many gears to be useful, and never settling down. Especially in stop and go traffic it would be another source of anxiety for me, I'm already worried the car might clip the edge of the construction barricades being so wide. With an automatic transmission you can use 87 octane. I now have 60,000 miles and the clutch is just starting to feel different than new (the engagement point is slightly lower on the pedal). PS: The automatic trans can perform a shift way faster then a person. Manuals and the people that can drive them are slowly dying off. However, most of the cars I'm finding around me are automatics. My main concern is that I'm moving back to New York City and driving a manual in a traffic heavy place might get annoying. Is this common now, or is it just because I'm not in a big city? However, I've been driving manual for 10 years straight and I have a Civic SI that I am going to keep as well so I will still have a manual car. The problems with manuals is that they are owned usually by enthusiast/collectors/I'm loving this machine til the wheels fall off.
Put it in gear, give it a little gas, ease off the clutch, and away you go. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. My only experience with a manual is the old Dodge ram from I think the 70s? I feel a manual would be more "fun" for this type of a car, but again, I did not grow up on a manual and am not very comfortable driving one (at least not yet). I have a ZO6 with a manual, and figured I could use an automatic in my life. To me, buying a sports car with an automatic is just wrong. Thoughts on whether or not getting a manual is worth it in a place like NYC? I would go with auto but I also find manuals annoying so it's just my preference. Hi. The manual doesn’t have the same ability (at least in the R/T Hemi trim). The 8 speed automatic is supposed to be really really good, better than manual in terms of performance and mpg and it has autostick to select gears. It's 2018, and hydraulic clutches have been a thing for a while now.
I only owned 1 manual in my life many years ago and that one I drove straight to my dads house to learn how. That's it. How about the other way? You can still shift manually if you want, just without clutching. Should I go manual or auto?
Thanks for the heads up. I have the challenger srt with the A8. Sure, there will be stalls and jerky gear changes, but that will smooth out with experience.

I've been holding off on buying a Challenger because I've ONLY driven automatics, but I want to learn stick. A car with 500 lb/ft of torque is easier to drive than a manual Toyota Yaris, because you don't have to wind up the engine, play with the clutch, downshift going up hills, etc. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack comes standard with the Tremec six-speed manual transmission, while the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission is available. Also, I have no issue ripping a 3.9 second 0-60 time with 20x10 wheels and a tune. With the automatic you get MDS mode, and can average higher MPGs.
I got the auto. Thanks for the heads up. I own a manual Scat and love driving it. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts.
The automatic is fully computer controlled and can adjust timing to account for bad gas. I am in the market for a new (to me) Challenger.
However, my '17 TA 392 is the A8. I drove my stinger in nj, right outside of Manhattan and I wouldn't take my stinger, let alone a challenger, into the actual city, city. Challenger automatic is faster but boring and challenger manual is more fun but slower. This is not up for debate. I'm glad I didn't make this mistake. Autos have come a long way and auto trannys in sports cars can either be shifted manually or left in auto nowadays. Slamming the autostick forward or backward is nowhere near as fun as banging the 6-speed around. Since I daily drive my Challenger now, that's important. A secondary reason is that with a manual you must buy premium fuel. Edit, didn’t proof read. Very interested in the auto-to-manual concept. The first burnout I did was a 20-second clutch smokeshow (high altitude [reduced horsepower] and a lack of understanding of the updated ESP system for the 2015+ cars). I know most people will say a car like this deserves a manual transmission. I still manage to get 26 MPG on the highway with a 6.4L. If this makes any difference, I'm currently living in the bay area, so traffic here can be pretty brutal at times.
I don't expect that trend to ever reverse. I was planning on getting a manual but... Today a buddy of mine and I were looking up compression ratios on some new cars and since I'm planning on buying a Challenger R/T soon I had … New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast.

You will be stuck buying 91 or 93 octane gas regardless of your transmission. If I lived in San Francisco or L.A. where you never escape traffic I’d get the automatic. Manual vs Automatic I've had an automatic challenger for a while now and have been looking into switching to a manual. In NYC i wouldn't even drive.
I love shifting and always thought that sports cars should be manuals also. We sell the occasional manual, however, most want the automatic and you can shift if you want and don't if ya don't. u/TheSmooothOne. I have never felt any fatigue when sitting in traffic (San Francisco, Sac, and LA). Press J to jump to the feed. Now a days automatics are faster then manuals... if your looking for speed automatic is the way to go unfortunately. Noob here looking for a first Challenger. Automatic all day.

I finally made my mind up about buying my dream car (after getting a nice raise from work a few days ago! Furthermore, the 392 has so much torque that you do not need to disengage the clutch until your wheels are completely stopped.
