I just assumed something related to maybe things needing to sync up internally. I dunno but now let me tell ya. I have never. NEVER had it shift so smoothly before. I've been driving around this weekend and so far it shifts really great. No RPM Flares, shudders vibration and NO NOISE!.
I haven't really got on it very hard but one or twice I needed to get around a car to position myself for an upcoming exit and it downshifted really well and pulled great.

I guess I'm trying to take it easy on the car though so I've been taking it pretty easy. Oh. I did experience one strange issue today. I was backing into my driveway which has a slight incline. I had to give it gas to get it to start rolling back and when I let off the gas it started bucking like I'd let out the clutch on a manual too fast.

SO I guess there's still some break in to go. but so far so good!.
The bucking will happen on a slope going backward or forward of it does not have enough gas.

Sounds like you are underway once again! Congrats.
