which would be better, an s-runner with a s/c, or a extended cab 4x4 manual. and which would be better for track, an auto or a manual, and how different would the times be for an auto vs a manual???

depends on what your future plans are, auto owns on a track because if you go turbo, you can just hold the brake and build boost quickly, my personal choice would be the S. but if youw ant off road than go with the 4x4....

auto = luxary
stick = fun
you're choice, what would you rather have?
IMO thats what it comes down to

how can you compare an SR with a 4x4?? Totally diffenent truck with different purposes. as far as auto or stick for better performance, generally for mostly stock setups on our trucks stick is better, unless you modify your auto, mechanically and electroniclly, then that would be insane. If you did it right.

well wouldn't you get all wheel drive with a 4x4? http://www.CustomTacos.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif http://www.CustomTacos.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evil.gif

a 4x4 in 4wd is slower then a 4x4 in 2wd, cuz in 2wd just it might lose some where around 15% of the power from the crank to the wheels, but in 4wd it might lose 20% of the power from the crank to the wheels. the only way it would really help you is grip, but you're taking away 5% of your HP for more grip, it's not worth it.
the same truck, with the same driver, in 2wd it will be faster.
edit: those %'s are not real, just guesses to give u an idea so don't qoute me on the %

Rule of thumb you lose 30% from the crank to the wheels in a 4x4. iN A 4X2 you would only lose 15% a marked improvement.That is why I get my ass beat up at track racing 2 wheel drive trucks and sports compacts.

I wouldn't exactly call it *fun,* but driving a manual is quite doable, even in bad traffic. It was snowing Friday and snow makes people forget how to drive around here. Took me about an hour and a half to go thirty miles (of which an hour plus was to go *ten* miles.) No big deal. I've found the first gear in my '97 is a little bit higher than the first gear in most small trucks, which is bad if you're pulling stumps, but good for slow traffic.
