I agree with the gearing issue. This might be better achieved by a 6th gear, acting as an overdrive. I see no reason that the engine should be revving so high whilst cruising down a motorway/ freeway. Even my Mercedes van has a 6th gear, so why not on a Wing? If pulling a trailer was a problem, then all one would need to do, is drop a gear, but this would surely only be necessary on inclines.
