    Not easy to say, but I think you are right. My experience is that a haverster tuned by a car-engine is faster than with a truck-engine and a lawnmower tuned by a 13horsepower original-engine is faster than with a 120hp motorcycle-engine. When the ratio is o.k. you do not need gears and will only lose time by changing. It was always more spectacle but not faster.
