Same specs on the Ridgeline - 5-speed.

My results match, especially the dip at 43 mph.
The truck will hold top gear below 43 after it has engaged, so I could have accelerated above 45, then dropped down to 43 (70 km/h) and that would have undoubtedly been the high point in the graph.

But I decided to do the runs straight up, no messin' around.
