Very true. Lightning can strike anywhere.

Maybe the LX transmission is a happy middle? Any way you could test drive a car with these various transmissions?

A very small turbo might be an option too. Small enough and it won't hurt economy, and will spool up very quickly. Not a cheap option but you could keep your power while gearing the car very tall for phenomenal highway economy.
