This is at the tradeoff of delicate wheel-horsepower control. Delicate control - by nature of it being a manual, you still have more control than with an automatic...
I am obviously a HUGE fan of SMG, because I think it can make driving much... well... more efficient than either manual or automatic. I am used to getting flamed for it. Bring it.
No, really, get a manual anyway. If you really want, you can always swap the manual with an SMG. Hydraulics is fun.
