See I was wondering how bad it was on the I4 too....it's a sign of the times I guess. Even my buddies new Mustang GT auto has it. But at least on that car there are a few ways to tune it out. I hope that can be said for us soon too.I have an I4 and it kills me too. It feels like someone pulled a parachute right before shifting. I feel like I can't get out of my own way.
Like for example, the other day i was pulling out of a store on to a busy street. So I had to make a hard right. I knew I didn't want the tires to go up in smoke or I'd go nowhere, but when I punched it to merge the TM kicked in a backed off the power before the 1-2 shift, way too much IMO.
But the other day I was on a back road and punched it from a stop, tires spun, but gained traction after about 20 feet or so, enough before the 1-2 shift that the TM didn't feel the need to kick in.
Also, the one time I went to the drag strip and ran it when I broke my Camaro LOL it didn't kick in at all. Because the track was sticky enough that the tires barely spun off the line and no TM had to kick in at all....
