Default Tip Tronic or Regular Automatic whats faster?

Hi I drive a 2006 Acura RSX with Tip Tronic. I was wondering what was faster. Is it faster if I stop at a traffic light and floor the gas in tip tronic and shift, or is it faster in automatic if i do the same thing? If you could please tell me what is faster and why it would be greatly apprecitated.

They are going to be just about the same. The auto will usually be a bit faster just because it doesnt have the "human error" part of it (like shifting too soon). They still go through all of the same mechanical workings, so its not much of a difference.

its basicly samething but tiptronic is much better because u are able to drive stick and auto tiptronic is fast and easy to accelate with but the automatic takes a little longer to get fast

I think it depends. Sometimes, the car will shift sooner than reaching the redline because it is trying to work economically. However, you have more control when you shift manually, but like someone else said, it depends on whether you know when to shift or not.

I guess it depends on how good at shifting you are. But I can't see there being a significant difference in the way the car drives. Any differences are probably negligible.But hell, you drive the car regularly, so you should be able to feel which mode is faster.

Obviously the tiptronic provided you have a brain intelligent enough to look at the RPM or hear the engine and shift at or just under the redline.The whole idea behind the triptronic is for pansies who want to drive a manual but are afraid of the clutch.

It does not make a difference. Tiptronics does not add any power to your car so it does not make it any faster. Tiptronics is designed for you to be in control, not the car. I don't care what anyone says or how many thumbs down I get, you will not go any faster with tiptronics.
