That's shifting! Be interesting to see what it is with the new gear set. At some point aerodynamic drag means you'll hit a real world limit that might not be so much higher. The benefit to your ears...

Great job Andrew. The time saved on engine removal, refit, plumbing, exhaust, must make the gearbox work almost free time!? The gear spacing looks handy. Am I right, 4th and 5th are now technically...
