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".

What's the difference if had a clutch instead of CVT where there was only engaged (at 1800 rpm), or not engaged. If I had a 7.5:1 ratio in that regard, how is it not acceptable to the initial gear ratio I have now?
