OMG not this ... please leave this on th ms6 forums! It's already spreading =/

I'm fairly new to driving a stick but If I floor it going 65 mph in 6th gear it feels like the engine bogs down and the clutch feels like it slips. Shouldn't you be shifting down to 5th gear if your only going 65 mph and plan on going WOT? Your RPMS are only sitting at about 3k... wouldn't you want to be in 5th gear if you plan on flooring it? Usually to pass someone I just press on the gas slowly in 6th gear until the RPMS reach 4k. Sorry to sound like a newb, I just want to make sure I understand what this guy is talking about.
