This is what I expected.  What I didn’t expect was that in Drive the car still moves forward without any throtleexcept the idle.  I have no experience with high speed stall converters but this seems strange.  Any info/help?
I didn't see this mentioned: What's the gear reduction in reverse versus 
the reduction in first?

If reverse is lower, you'd get a bit more pull in that gear.

Also: the brakes don't self-energise in reverse, so any pressure on the 
system at all would be more effective in low than reverse.
