I don't know why this turns into an attack on people's driving abilities. I've had my car 1 week and skip shift is a pita. Maybe you weekend warriors don't encounter it in all your street racing but I daily drive my car. When rolling away from a stop in traffic my skip shift activates almost every day. You can't always pound on the car when you're in town! Since I've got 3.73's I guess I could just start off in second since the car seems fine with this.
