Help with new bike recommendation

Hello.


Considering a new disc road bike. The disc Felt VR4 I have is not as efficient or comfortable on the road as my Look caliper braked bike, so want to make the Felt strictly for gravel and get a disc road bike that can handle 28, 30, or 32 tires for the isolated, rural are where I ride.



I am a fan of Ti, but open to CF. Would just like the weight to be reasonable as I draft behind turtles on climbs.
Electronic shifting preferred and I already have a good carbon wheelset to go on this, so the wheels that come with it will be for back-up.



Budget is $8K max, total... so, opinions please?


I am 62 and am trying to get back to a 17mph average by spring when I've signed up to do a 100 mile ride. TIA
