That is true and the 700+3.45 will have better cruising speeds.
Its not that the BTR's gears are stacked close, its rather the sever jump from 1st to 2nd on the TH700R's.
If reving to 5500rpm, the 1-2 change in the boxes will result in this
5500 (1st) ==> 2900 (2nd)
5500 (1st) ==> 3350 (2nd)
Doesnt seem much but it could be the diffrence of being on full boost and boging down.
It gets worse as you lower the shift rpm, as is the case in day to day thrashing/driving.
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
Ill take it as a complement i think.............
