Try it the same as you always do tomorrow, first in N, then in R, Each pull will change down, guaranteed

This is very sound advice, I always drive in R now as N is so lethargic.

The GTR gearbox is still incredibly quick when your pushing it in R mode, it's not very comfortable with pottering around.

I guess a combination of being old tech and also bear in mind it can take 600lbft+ stock which very few DCT's can do even today, its like a heavy clutch pedal on a high torque manual - that extra engineering in one aspect appears to come at the expense of a little refinement around town.
