modern auto's are ok as long as the gears have the ability to be changed manually, otherwise auto transmissions just never read me correctly when i'm scootin along, takes a while to downshift, downshifts when i have no problem being out of the powerband, maybe its my driving?
and don't auto's suck up hp?

The IS-F's auto tranny at least locks the torque converter in 2-8 gears, apparently. Hey, it's a start.
