If BAT DISCHARGE light illuminates during an AC power APU start, it's a good idea to call up the engineer. It should only come up during battery APU start.

Recommend reading the FCTM on Boeing's opinion about not following flight directors. But the manual is probably written for us mere mortals, not for the Chuck Yeagers of the sky.

A 737 will go to Vmo at 10deg pitch and 80% N1 with flaps extended? Or 4 deg pitch and 75% N1 in clean configuration? Even at OEW and a bit of fuel to run the engines, I very much doubt it.
