Granted, I am a slow track noob but I was hitting redline in 4th at the very end of the front straight at Big Willow. As I got faster, I would have to brake earlier, because I would hit redline earlier but a shift to fifth wasn't feasible.

Hopefully, I'll get fast enough that I will have to shift but at least for now, a couple hundred RPMs extra would be nice.
