Do you ever get a "missed" shift from 1 -> 2?

This has happened to me 5 or 6 times over the last 5,000 miles. I'll be sitting at a stoplight, in manual mode and decide that I need to accelerate quickly when the light goes green. I give the car ~75% throttle, and as the tach shows ~4k rpm, I pull the upshift paddle for 2cnd gear. The car doesn't shift, and of course by the time I notice and can pull the paddle a second time, the motor is at or very near redline.

At first I thought I hadn't cleanly pulled the paddle, maybe it was just the switch didn't get a clean contact for long enough. But I find it kind of embarrassing to be redlining first gear when I didn't intend to, and so I started paying strict attention to how I was using the controls. As best I can tell, I'm using the controls correctly, and the car should be getting a shift signal. It just doesn't do it. And of course its very rare, there is no way (except luck) that this would ever reproduce during a test drive, so trying to show it to a nissan mechanic is not really going to happen. We'd have to spend all day going from stoplight to stoplight, and burn up a few tanks of gas!

I'm just curious, do any of the rest of you have this happen?

Never happened to me. If you don't want it to redline, don't put it in Manual R.

are you rolling up to the light? with lc2 and rolling to a stop sometimes i get in a weird zone where i hit the gas as it's deciding to down shift to first and it will rev to like 3-4k and then jerk forward when it engages. I've learned to make sure that i come to a complete stop at lights for a good second or two and that first is fully engaged before taking off.
