Yes - I can see the power band - altho I must say I am very happy with the power that kicks in at 3000. From the discussions so far, I can feel it improve up to 3500 - but it really pulls quite strongly and suddenly from 3000. No complaints above 3000. I have shortened 3&4 for the track to try and make a closer ratio box to try and work in this range as much as possible - given I only have 4 to play with.
But I am fairly sure from this discussion and dewolf's link I am missing useful power below the boost level. I'd be very happy if I could get the beast off the mark like his - no complaints at all. By the same token, I would not be stuck in 2nd under 3000 rpm with foot nailed to floor reciting 'Mary had a little lamb', waiting for something to happen.
I'm pretty sure it is under performing in this range and basically bogging down rather than pulling thru it.
