Or, rather than Freon, maybe a shot of acetone brake cleaner once in a while would help. Adding nozzles to inject the cleaner directly would save the effort of disassembling the whole transmission periodically.

If Ford were to add this revision in the future, they could automate it by detecting "clutch shudder events" in real time, like engine anti-knock sensors are used to automatically adjust ignition timing. Think of the marketing campaign Ford could use, too. "The only car brand to use the new and excitingly advanced Direct Injected Dual Clutch Transmission (DIDCT)! (I hope no one is taking me seriously. )
