No Downshift at 90 MPH

Question, in auto or sport mode I applied full throttle doing about 90 mph and it didn't downshift. I was somewhat surprised as it will downshift 2 gears from 75 mph. Has anyone else noticed this?

Of course you can tap the downshift lever and are good to go, just wondering why it didn't do it in drive.

I've noticed that too, it doesn't seem different in sport or track either but I bet will get straightened out with tuning

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Manually downshift at 90 mph and see what happens. Maybe it'll rev to high in the next lower gear? Or it won't let you shift for that reason.

Manual downshift only added about 600 rpm so it was still below 4000. Didn't try downshifting to 3rd but I imagine that would bump it closer to 5000 rpm which would be a wasted shift.
