30% at 3800rpm is more than fine.
Lugging is more like 80-100% at 2000-2500rpm
100% at 3K in 4-6th is not good regardless of whether you resist calling it lugging. 3500 is far better for 4th , over 4K for 5th or 6th. If that's to fast then those gears were certainly not needed at that time.

Thank you for reply. Any gear above 3500 rpm is fine for engine to pull am I right?
Not really. If you want to accelerate the n the best gear to be in is one that will put you closer to 4500, 100% @ 3500rpm in 5th and 6th gear will create a lot more stress than being in a lower gear and it they will be slower anyway. So why do it? You have a transmission, use it to you and your engines advantage ! ! !

Thank you for reply. I haven鈥檛 100% WOT on my car yet. 50% is most time I do pull, yesterday just apply 30-40% at 5th 3k8 rpm.
