Well mine ain't really happy at parade speeds either. Call me nuts, been when it's been designed to run all day at triple digits without complaining, you can excuse it a little for not happily loping along at 10 mph. That's the way I look at it. At lower speeds I run in 1st or second and it does better. Yeah mine bucks a little in town in 3rd or higher, and I have found I need to hang on to a gear a little longer, like what you are saying, before upshifting, as well.
