Manual slower?

When I play Time Trial, i notice that my kart seems to go slower when i use manual then my ghost does (which is automatic). And what i mean by this is that it seems that karts using manual seem to suffur from an overall speed reduction. Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just imagining things?

You're imagining things. Manual actually has the potential to go faster.

Duuuude pass me some of that stuff your smoking, cause apparently something screwed with your mind (no offense). Manual is way faster due to the mini boosts you get after drifting

no, i don't mean as in overall speed.

I mean when i go down a straight away, it seems like the manual goes a little bit slower.

Thanks for reviving this. Allow someone to check the "latest posts" and think this is some kind of hot topic -_-
