Now Philip, why does one particular driver (initials are MS) win such a high
percentage of Formula races using SMG when the cars are all very closely
defined? Little to do with driver skill I would guess from your comment...I
don't think so. I know, change is difficult for many so denial is to be
expected. You will eventually be driving a SMG-equipped car cause you will
have no choice other than an automatic. I personally can't wait for SMG to
show up in an all-wheel drive car. I'll be 1st in line (if it weighs less
than 4000 lbs. and has at least 300HP and 4 doors).
