Evo 8 mr transmission cruising shifting question

Hey everyone, just had a quick questions. I have a evo 8 mr tranny and it shifts smooth and perfect but only have one issue. Lets say i am cruising on the highway and throw it neutral and let it just roll at 60ish mph ... now when i want to get back in gear it never goes into 4th gear... if i try to put it str8 to 4th gear you will hear a harsh grinding noise and i dont force it then. Otherwise i have no problem shifting from 3rd to 4th or downshifting from 5th to 4th gear.... am i to be worried i can live without shifting to 4th from nuetral loll

Try bliping the throttle before doing that.

That's a pretty big speed difference for the synchro to make up. You generally don't want to cruise in neutral at speed so don't do that?
