I'm going to take your word for it, but I really wish someone could tell me why. Again, I'm not trying to be difficult, just looking for solid reasoning. As they say in the Show Me state, "Show Me"....

Yes, I have driven a stick for many years but I can't get past how I initially (and effectively) have a 7.5:1 ratio and how that's not good enough.
