Just looked at all of the comments of this issue and everybody has the exact same problem including me. Maybe Honda should fix this massively apparent problem. The shift hesitation between 40-45 was solved when I replaced some of my tranny fluid with Royal Purple. I still have a few other issues that are most definitely related to a control unit of some sort.
RPM doesn't move past 4, great switch between reverse and drive are difficult, and picking up speed is difficult.
