At a severe incline (say as severe as a freeway will go) it held up 100 km/h / 62mph in 5th, with no trouble whatsoever getting a bit more to pass some slower cars.

6th gear is kind of an overdrive, but it pulls nicely all the way to 5th.

For the record, 6ft1", 190 lbs.
Thanks Tiago... Just what I needed to know.
