Ok so let me understand what your saying here. I will quote your wall of blithering confusion for you.

"Think about it for a second"

If you set top gear(6th) to max speed of the longest straight.

& all gears are equally spaced

You equally divide the multiplied (magnified) power drop from 1st to 6th among the gears by having the gears spaced equally.

Highest average power through the gears is achieved by equally spacing the gears.

We use comparing power at exit to power at entry with those gears across the tq/acceleration curve to dial in shift points.

With equal spaced gears getting the highest average power across the gears, we adjust shifting to get best acceleration with the equally spaced gears because equal spaced gears DOES NOT mean it's ideal to shift at the same rpm in each gear for maximum acceleration.

2 things being mixed up together.

It simply comes down to this

Let max slider do it's job, then refine the gears to the track and dial in optimum shift points like I show.

"Problem with GT is the useless graph makes dialling in optimum shift points to power at exit and entry guestimations without clear data."

I will now quote your last line for you above.

Would you like to elaborate what gears and shift points I should use for any car that happens to use a "Draft"?

Your graph and theory is moot,to say the least,for track's like Daytona Road,Indy Road,etc. I won't even include Nascar in the equation.

So if I "let my max slider do the job and refine the gears" according to your graph's/theory,I will be getting passed like I'm standing still on the back stretch at Daytona in an LMP race.

Or I will quote you again,

"If you set top gear(6th) to max speed of the longest straight.

& all gears are equally spaced"

Which if I understand what your saying, I will get smoked in every corner as my final gear will take forever to get too without tuning the other 5 gears unequal according to your graph.

You are correct my friend and I will quote you again,"2 things being mixed up together".
