WHEN I TRY TO DO A RAPID ACCELERATION THE NEEDLE...

When I try to do a rapid acceleration the needle gets to 4000RPM and then starts falling gradually despite still having my foot on the gas. To get it to rise again I would have lift my foot of the gas and apply it again
gently.
This does not happen when I accelerate slowly, if I
do slowly, I would hit 5000RPM without any
problems.
The CEL is not on and I have used a dealer level
tool on the car and it returns no codes whatsoever.
Outside this the car moves fine and does not even
jerk when this happens, you just notice the car
slowing down despite hitting the gas. Any ideas?
