the only flaw to that thinking is you are in the minority. If you have to climb a 6% grade or more... you definitely want all the power your engine can generate. OEMs dont care about the end user. THey only want to sell a product with the least amount of warranty claims/issues for the most profit $$$. Everything else (reliability, end user satisfaction, etc) is just gravy
