excessive delayed 2 - 3 shift s appear not normal

Thanks to all who have been replying to this thread. Please keep it coming.

It appears that my problem is not normal, and that there is much confusion whether the delay in general is necessary.

As a result of all your feedback, I have written a note to MBZ of North America about this subject.

I feel it is time MBZ address this definitively for us.

Again, if there is someone who really understands the inner workings of this and can shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

Also, does anybody know where I can get a a good set of techincal/service manuals that would have tranny info included? Apparently MBZ have not yet put the the R129 onto CD's yet.
