Smallest question ever posted.

When your car shifts gears, does the tach needle bounce a little before settling in at the new RPM? Its like the needle dips to a lower RPM on the tach, and then gets moving back up the range again. My 300 does this but my 400 doesn't. Is this normal?

I'm really just looking for something to tinker with here.

400E spins at a much lower RPM so maybe thats why, the 300 probably shifts at a higher RPM because it doesnt have as much power.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.

The needle movements should have enough dampening to avoid such. I would suspect a problem with the one that is bouncing.
