Turning off TC fixes my low-speed shudder, yet when I need traction control pulling out of my driveway my car just sits there and flashes that stupid light at me. I do have winter tires, but I wonder if my TC issues stem from the clutch slipping because TC is based off of a lot of inputs these days.

I know that 12B37 helped with shifting profiles and stopped the car from rolling back and all of that jazz, but I'd rather have the TSB I had before 12B37 and have the roll-back on inclines. Plus, then I can pretend I have a manual.
