I used to have the feeling like I had to wait for the sync, also about 1/2 a second. But I have found that I can shift right 'through' the sync and get right in, as fast as I can shift. This effect is more noticable at high RPMS. In fact, that's the only time I'm trying to shift that fast, when he RPMs are above 6000.
