It could be that the rapid demand sucked up some crud off the bottom of the pan and it got through the filter and plugged up the shift solenoids or the filter is just plain plugged, but have a professional check it out, the RX trannies have problems, after I serviced the one I had, I put in "lube guard" for Toyotas and never had any trouble with the trans, I had 135000 when it got totaled.
