This strategy is intended to provide immediate clutch response sufficient to prevent slip during engine braking, yet permit smooth off-throttle operation by eliminating torque transfer during events where slip is unlikely.

Finally, it is intended to ensure front overrun control at low speeds where previous strategies would disconnect to account for turns
