All NA'd 3800'* without the button are in performance mode all of the time...

If you have the button and set it to normal shift, the diffrence is utterly slight

Slight...that'* an overstatement. Even SC'd you'd be hard up to notice the difference.

Why is it that you guys need 6k RPM to go 50MPH? I can do it with 5k. I try not to let my baby go past 5k when shifting, and 1-2 is just a hair under 50mph [whiplash prevents me from really watching the speedo ].

Because at 50mph or mid 40'* most of us are at our redline. In you're case LN3 is aroun 5200rpm. The ser 2 redlines at 6000rpm. However, shift points are always below the redline.
