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.

MANUAL, you are really controling the car, not just planting the foot
