Default First gear shifts into 2nd around 5k RPM'*?

Hey guys,

I noticed that if I turn my car on, and begin going, my car shifts into 2nd gear around 5000 RPM'*... the weird thing is that I noticed when I had my *-10, it did the same thing... is this normal? This onlky occurs when I first turn the car on, you can say that it happens once every car start.

No matter how hard yo push the gas? Sounds like an internal tranny component sticks when the fluid is cold.
