Your studs are too narrow. You'll need 2x12's at 12" o.c. just for wind at 80 mph for strength. Good luck finding straight studs that long. Can you brace the wall with horizontal beams? You might need steel columns to brace the wall if horizontal beams do not work. Charles F. Espenlaub, III, P.E.

If you finger joint them or double them up and splice them can you get 30'-0" clear?
