From a stop, my torque converter can MULTIPLY the engines torque for better accel. (Don't use the flawed 0-60 times C&D and others posted, they didn't do brake-stands for the CVTs, but did launch the MT cars).

On the superslab, when you're in 6th, how much pep ya got? NONE! All I have to do is floor it, and I'm at torque peak in a second, faster than you can downshift 3 gears.
Faster, slower, who cares. MT is much more fun to drive you cant argue your way around that. The only thing CVT has on the MT is that you can text or eat while driving easier
