ruxp is feeling the relatively harsh effect of engine braking in 1st gear. If you suddenly let off the gas in 1st gear, there will be a bit of lurching by the car and the passengers. Obviously, the effect of engine braking is much more noticeable in 1st than any other gear because of the gear ratio.
