1-2 when cold is very notchy. Definitely have to slow it down till it warms up a bit. The gear lube in these is incredibly thin, so I think it's just the design of the synchros. They use a friction material applied to the rings rather than a ridged ring to grab the gear and slow it down. The friction material likely doesn't slow the gear down as fast especially when cold.
