My car does this once every few months randomly. My guess is that some non-critical sensor isn't being read. And it goes away on the next start.
So you mean like hi rev downshifting? Do I keep my foot on the gas or just shift to second and let go of the clutch

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
