[DML] Turbos and automatics (no relation)



Johnny,
     Lay off the cough syrup, alright man?  Seriously, I'm worried 
about you....:)  I stuck to your heels the whole time I wasn't 
leading at speeds in excess of 90 MPH.  The only difficulty was 
passing slower traffic using the oncoming lane as a passing lane 
when you zipped out and around with no warning.  Remember, you are 
in a lower ratio than me at cruising speeds spinning higher RPM.  
You are bound to be a bit more responsive, unless I downshift or get 
some boost.  And ALL of this was with two large people in the car.  
We outweighed you almost 4 to 1!  I'm not proud of that, BTW.
     I will admit though, I've heard a LOT of guff about the 
automatics on here.  We have three members with automatics that have 
gone on numerous cruises in and around Arizona with us and they 
NEVER have any problem keeping up.  I was led to believe that the 
automatics were slow dogs, but that just isn't the case.  I'm sure 
they wind it out a lot more in each gear, but we've never had 
someone fall behind because they were driving an automatic 
DeLorean.  In fact, I can remember really working to keep up with 
Matt Stits in Las Vegas when he drive his automatic.  Talk about 
driving like you stole it!
