I didn't notice any gigantic difference on my drive home with TCS off. That said, it did seem a tad better. I'll keep an eye on it...

(Note that I haven't had any major issues with my tranny to date)

That's why they keep us locked in the basement.

Note: That was just an example - I don't work for Ford. I am, however an engineer stuck working in a basement with desks/cubicle walls from 1970 while the people upstairs are on like... their 4th remodel since 2000.
I know your pain, dude... I know your pain.
