I was all exited about this ''possible fix'' when I read about it today. So upon gettin my hands on my car at the end of my shift, I did the 7 step procedure to deactivate the TC (The damm engineer that buried this feature so deep does not deal with snow banks 6 months a year, that's for sure) and...no cigar...

The car/tranny still behave like a lardass. There is still the same amount of shudder, the same amount of ''lag'' when in motion and trying to get some speed quick, the same loss of power when taking a 90 degree turn and the same amount of insane over reving when trying to get some speed quick.

I know you guys are talking about the shudder thing, but I was kinda hoping it would also resolve the sh!tty tranny behavior I have. Saddly not. I'll keep looking into it. If some of you guys can find some peace and joy with this, I'm happy for you all.

Cheers
