    In my personal opinion I think that the manual witch is faster but then again an automatic witch will be easier to control.

    In any car, with a good driver, the stick will be quicker than auto. Reason being, they transfer power more efficiently. The clutch and gear shafts combined with the rear axle of a manual only draw about 15% of the engines power (or about 45hp from a 300hp engine), while the torque converter, clutch packs, bands, shafts of an automatic plus the rear axle accounts for about a 20% loss (or about 60hp from a 300hp engine).

    From a stop, again, a good driver in a stick car will get away MUCH faster than a stock auto. Reason for it is you can't rev the engine above about 1100rpm with a stock torque converter in an auto, even though peak torque isn't until after 3500rpm. With a manual, you can rev it to 3500rpm to take off and get much quicker acceleration. Also, someone who is very good at shifting can shift faster than a typical automatic.

    The automatic has two big advantages though. First, if you plan on bracket racing (drag racing) the car, the automatic will be more consistent, making it easier to win. Second, if you plan on big power, you can build an auto to hold a LOT more power, and make better use of it.

    Stick.

    The 67 Camaro stick had more gears, which means a higher top speed and quicker acceleration.

    Stick Shift(Manual) Transmissions are also lighter, cheaper, and more reliable because it has less moving parts. Since they are lighter, they help the car even more with handling and acceleration.
