honestly, you have to be bad to miss shift at a point where a '95 auto tranny beats you... Even on a 240sx. Tom's focus' turbo'd, power is power. But the only advantage I see in autos is no (or almost) wheel splipage on start... which is really the only thing that on a FWD without LSD could make you lose.

Trust me, i know a lot about how auto trannies are made, even more in the 90's...

PS: If you want to win, just don't drop the clutch at 6000rpm and WOT right after, between 3000-3500 rpm launch and a lil' bit of time not at WOT for the car to catch up and you should be good.
I'm all for pushing boundaries, but installing an aftermarket tune and revving the piss out of the motor doesn't push any boundaries or further the human race. It just makes lots of noise.
