expression on solid with a drop Shadow fx

Hi all,
I am trying to write an expression for a solid with a drop Shadow fx: when the solid scale has no key frames, drop shadow distance is 0, when solid scale gets bigger, drop shadow distance gets bigger (up to 18 distance), I did succeed writing something that actually works, BUT..... the problem is that the shadow distance is "jumping" from 0 to 18 in 1 frame and not actually growing over the time i gave for the scale key frames.....Thanks in advanced!

I just used the pick whip:

transform.scale[0]+value-550

I added the value -550 because the shadow distance was not correct... my layer's scale amount is from 100%-to-575%


Thank you!!
