I agree with you about it being front heavy, I'm hoping as I make improvements, I can redress that trait to some extent. It's still a pig, but I hope I can find some decent lipstick for it.

With the Evolve tune, much of the up top end power loss is negated - at least at Road Atlanta. I don't have many other places where I can go as fast for as long, so that is probably my frame of reference for top speed. I think a few additional "tweaks" can improve my top end a bit more.
