Is there a difference between slipping and flaring?

Ever since I had my cam installed and tuned I feel my L99 sometimes slip between 3rd going into fourth, and 5th going into 6th. Itís really noticeable if I use tapshift. It doesnít do it all the time. If Iím aggressive on the throttle, or on the track itís perfectly fine. The slipping/flaring only occurs during casual local driving while slowly rolling into the throttle. I had a couple tuners look at the file and both say itís flaring and is normal on these autoís. I somehow find this hard to believe.

The tune from the factory allows for a "comfort slip" that is actually the bands/clutches slipping for driver comfort. You are now putting more power to the trans then intended and need a good trans tune by one of the respected tuners on here before it eventually fails. The A6 is a tuff trans, but it needs to be tweaked to deal with the power put to it.
