I don't think disabling by default a safety feature is going to fly with anyone at Ford, especially their lawyers, possibly not with the NTSB either so we're talking doing that on your own, unofficially I guess. As far as the DCT goes mine behaves wonderfully so far (knock on wood) and I can't relate to all this shuddering stuff people talk about.
