Up hill, lose power and slow down by 20 kms. High RPM's when accelerating fast but can bring down if I let up on accelerator a bit as if I'm driving a standard without a clutch. WAY over rev's by its self uphill sometimes and I have to take it easy and let it off a bit to bring the RPM's down. Can not use cruise control because it over rev's to try to stay at speed up hills.
