I didn't Tom, Ford has a defect and they need to replace the clutch.
Wasn't worth your time since its Ford's bad.
I'm 100% happy with the adjustments you made and would do it again in a second.
Every time I press the start button my thought is this is going to be fun.

I'll keep making them replace the clutch until its out of warranty which will be awhile..

I was referring to sport automatic mode but never mind.

Drive (D)
In drive, the transmission will perform fully automatic shifts if you do not use the shift buttons. However, by pressing the upshift or downshift buttons you can take temporary manual control. Based on driver interactions, the system will determine when temporary manual control is no longer in use and return to fully automatic shifting.

Sport Automatic (S)
After you shift into Sport mode and before you attempt to make a manual shift, SelectShift will provide performance-oriented automatic shifts for you. For example, when lifting off the accelerator pedal, the transmission may hold the gear for better performance and engine braking. And when braking on hilly roads, the transmission may downshift at higher speeds in order to provide better engine braking.


Sport Manual (S)
To enter Sport manual mode, simply press your vehicle’s button or paddle to upshift or downshift. This mode gives the driver extensive manual control. You can change gears up and down yourself by using the shift controls in your vehicle. The shift controls may be located on buttons on the shift lever or on paddles behind the steering wheel. Though you may change gears yourself, SelectShift does not have a clutch pedal like a fully manual transmission.

I have my tunes set for manual or self shift but only at redline

You dont actually have SA or SM both with the Focus stock

I dont like how in sport mode the TCM shifts the trans early RPM so I set it to full Manual in the tune
