After 450k you should know! haha...
You're getting into the powerband on the 7.3 around around 1800-2000 rpms. At 3k rpm's you're falling off it.
Imagine pedalling up a hill in 2nd gear on a bike how fast you're flailing about but not really getting any speed up, and then you switch to 3rd gear and suddenly you're workin it up that hill!... same idea.
Same thing happens if you hit the hill too fast and you can't keep that speed up you have to drop down a gear to get back into the powerband.
