Does a manual transmission make a car faster than an automatic?

in some cases...but automatic shifts faster than most manual drivers ;)

yes that is true but manual delivers more power due to manual transmissions using a completely mechanical connection to transfer power from the fly wheel to the tranny... if you have any questions just ask but you are rght on the first one but not talking about shifting the manual delivers more power because on an automatic power is lost going through a torque converter because of the liquid connection
