Say that I'm jumping out into traffic and wind out 1st gear to around 4 1/2 rpms......................... why is it that when i shift into second the car jumps (not smooth). AND is there any way that i can wind out 1st gear and shift into second smoothly?

you are letting the rpm's drop too far and when you engage the clutch the car lurches into the proper rpm

yeah or you need to keep the rpm's up. if you do it properly the transition will be smooth. if you are too high in the rpm they will fall then rise. if you are too low in rpm;s the car will lurch
