I disagree. If this simulation is correct on this point, and I believe it to be almost for sure so, redline shifts will be required in gears 1-3 or 1-4 in the new car for maximum acceleration, which is identical to the existing car. If you want the maximum performance, redline will be required, simple. Of course you could avoid some of the odd feeling associated with the tapering off of torque and acceleration at high rpms by shifting a bit early. Ultimately though that is like hoping you earn less money so you can pay less taxes!
