From the driver's seat Kent's office is simple, immaculate, and all business. The long, black hand throttle controls the engine speed. Next to that is a shorter black handle that controls the Profab Machine single-speed (reverser) transmission. On the fabricated center console you can also see three polished handles that operate the injection pump fuel supply shutoff, and a fuel supply pump diverter valve, as well as the handle that shuts the air intake valves on the turbos. Mounted on the dash, just behind the Corsa data logger, is a digital display for Kent to read vital engine information. In the foreground there's an air-to-ice water intercooler for the engine's induction system--but we swore not to tell you any more about it than that.
