Especially when cold, and initially starting out in first gear, the engine rpms hang up, and takes a while to drop. If I don't wait until the rpms drop, second can be quite notchy. I live on a hill, with 3.31s, so if I want, I can skip all that and just start out in second. I drive a semi for UPS, so I've been forced to get good at rev matching. Stock fluid and shifter work for me. Oh, almost forgot, probably placebo, but I park in second just for good measure. I like my MT82 a lot.
Real easy lol. I hit 28k in the first year. It's meant to drive not sit parked!
