ZHP hesitation at 4K

Dont know if its just on a ZHP, but does anyone else notice a substantial hesitation at 4k when accelerating hard. Im assuming its the vanos kicking in but i thought it was supposedly step-less.

Some people notice it in their bmws. I noticed it in my E36 AND my E46...particularly in this car, I will be in 3rd gear full throttle and at around 4k my rpms stop going up for a split second but u totally notice it and hear it in the engine. Its like fuel is cut off for half a second. It's pretty annoying though. I have read a thread about this issue though and others have seen it happen in their regular 3ers
