Resistance shifting gears

Is it normal for there to be a "pause" when shifting M6 between gears. Hard to describe, but there is resistance just before it goes into next gear, doesn't go right into gear. Is that just the syncros? It makes it hard to shift fast. I have 900 miles on it, maybe it will loosen up.

I switched to Mobil 1 Dex III ATF fluid in the M6 and the shift feel is quite a bit improved, especially in cold weather.

That's the same juice I put in mine. Plus the ripshifter is a definite improvement over stock.
