    depends on what sort of racing

    drags = shift kitted auto/manualised auto
    circuit= manual gearbox

    so cant actually vote for any of them

    Regardless of number of gears or kind of racing MANUAL. A slushy might be slightly quicker in a drag car but seeing superstocks etc with manuals picking up the front wheels on each gearchange rocks.
    I raced speedway last season with auto and this season i have converted to manual and even though once in race gear it stays there with the manual i have much better control and less parasitic power loss

    The only thing about my VT I don't like is that the auto has trouble picking the right gear, i would prefer a semi auto like the falcon has for a daily.

    Not fussed either way. I like the 6 speed manual, very nice to drive but i still would've bought the car if it was an auto.

    5 speeds are great but if i worked in the city i'd go with standard auto for sure.
