You only need to bump the engine speed ONLY at idle! Having a lightweight flywheel will cause excessive rattling noises.

Going up to redline is much faster and so as acceleration.

One draw back is that you loose some momemtum or torque on uphills. Example, you maintain a speed of 75mph going up hill, you let go off the accelerator pedal for a second and floor it, you'll loose the punch and may have to downshift.
Same thing applies in Gran Turismo =)
