edit: well, now im wondering if maybe the car loses first when hot. I just watched the 0-60 video I took this morning and it stays in "first" gear until around 45 mph. Anyone know how much mph it should have at the end of first? Looking around for gear ratios now.

edit2: no, looks like 1st should end up around 45mph or so with back of the envelope calculation. Sigh. How to get more low end?
