On the Fastest page it has a AT at his time. Is he running a automatic? When did he switch to that? Thought he had a manual at Maple Grove at IDRC and Nira....

Damn, I didn't know that!
Anyone have any comments on the new driveline parts they are using. They seem to be holding up pretty good considering he was running back to back low 9's and holding it together. :)

Brent had a 5 speed in his car when he turned the 9.18. I did a little checking and it's all hype. They tried to run an auto but turned some double digit times then put the 5spd back in and Sean ran his 9.10. So don't believe anything you hear and half of what you see.

He showed up at (I think it was) Maple Grove with the auto already in. The first time down, he broke something, they switched him back in the pits and he continued racing and left as a manual.
(Here's the secret) They are going back and rebuilding the auto to use again, and any custom modifications will be available for sale at a later date.

I figures "why speculate when his e-mail address is right there on the fastest times page" I e-mailed Brent asking about this and here is his reply:


"no that is a missprint I still have a stock 5 speed

Brent Rau"
