thanks for the input,
but, it seems to me to be totally upside down.
"D" should shift at exactly the same rpm in high or low range.
then if i want put around the motor is not revving to 3000-4000, for absolutely nothing, for hours at a time.
if you want to rev it to the moon, then us "M".
to me i just can't wrap my brain around this, it seems so basically dumb.
