Here's an idea go play Forza build a car with all the mods and then put a race transmission on the vehicle. then change the final drive. what you will notice is that as your acceleration goes up your top speed goes down and vice versa. that improvement in acceleration is because your car now sits in the power band earlier at speed and your car would fall closer into the power band between gear shifts.

(

THE FOLLOWING IS STRICTLY AN EXAMPLE RESULTS WILL VARY

Imagine your power band is between 4000 and 6000rpm that is where the most torque and horsepower exists

if your in 3rd and change gears at 6000rpm in a car with a 3.23 your car may drop to 3600rpm

and then do the same with a 2.93 your car may drop to 3300rpm therefore taking you further away from your power band.
