The Focus doesn't use a torque converter in its automatic transmission, its a dry dual disk friction clutch pack controlled by electronics.

So you're saying that it has a torque converter is incorrect. The PowerShift automatic transmission with or with out select shift is essentially two manual transmissions in a single gear case with a clutch for each sub box concentrically.

This isn't your father's planetary geared automatic transmission with a torque converter.
