^-- this is true, but this is a lot of theory.

the FD change will change the RPM range you are in, in a given situation. sometimes you need that quicker acceleration for a shorter distance, depends on what's in front of you (i.e. sharp turn). so the 35% decrease in distance isn't always an issue.

This is why race cars run different FD ratios depending on the track they are at.
