This is why I often limit my transmission to go no higher than 3rd or 4th in the City.

    However, when I purposely "boot it" a couple of times, the tranny does start to figure out which gear it needs to be in quicker.

    I find the "delay" is at it's worse when I have been taking it easy for awhile (few days or more) and then need to boot it.

    It seems the best thing to do, is "Beat the truck on a regular basis ... preferably a couple of times a day". Let it know "Who's boss".
    Your absolutely right about that!!

    Also I've noticed that in traffic 25-35 mph (because I drive so hard on the truck) the shifting becomes very hard. So it seems to help by putting it in 3rd or 4th. You don't get the pause then a hard shift. It Feels the same as a petal delay.

    The memory of the trans really messes with the petal action.
