I'd like to know if there's anything I can adjust to change this behavior:
- from a stop, drops into first gear with less pedal than I feel should trigger first gear even if I don't put the shifter in second.
- in fourth gear, usually won't drop into third unless I hit the kickdown switch or downshift manually. I lose all my momentum on long grades.
- otherwise 2-3 is a shade harsher than I'd like. 3-4 isn't silk but much better.
I've never touched the cable between the throttle linkage and the transmission (bowden cable?). I'm hessitant to do so because I don't want a general shift (no pun intended) in downshifting.
