Hi 98LX,

I think you should - rethink your previous comment ... ???

"RPM would be lower, but you would have to push the accelerator harder ??"

You would use engine torque to maintain the higher gear whilst maintaining the same rpm vs speed figure.

A minor lesson in recipicating engines; "at any time you press the accelerator in the same gear - the RPM will increase - they are connected by an accelerator cable".
