The only vehicles I know that use direct drive are dirt track cars.

Some hybrid cars are a direct drive like the new Accord or the koenigsegg agera. But maybe you are thinking of no clutch or torque converter.

Why would you want an option box for a track car?

Option box's are only really suitable for dirt rallying. 

A OD box is a far better proposition for your desired application.

I know what you are looking for. I have two of them and they do work for road racing. Unfortunately mine are not for sale and I hear recently they're going for around 6k now, so you better be ready to pay big money.

Steve at Rising Sun in Dallas can get one.

 

Never bought anything from them but he seems like a nice guy.

Although Nissan themselves used Option 1, 2 & 3 'Direct Drive' 1:1 5th gear transmissions in both circuit race cars and rally cars in period, and Overdrive 5-speeds in both circuit race cars and rally cars in period. It depended on the nature of the event in question.
