    have occaisionally been known to take it out of 6th and just pop it back in for good measure just because there still so much torque on 6th

    I have six, and I would sooner it be five, with a lot taller 1st gear. Don't know why powerfull cars need more gears, a powerfull torquey engine can run longer gears with ease.
