2. Such acceleration curves will dip substantially less than MT or SMG curves on deceleration and will be capable of exhibiting shifts where the dip in acceleration will not go to negative acceleration values.

I agree with 2 so I won't bet there.

How about the MDCT will take >0.8 seconds to shift (me) and you bet the MDCT will take <0.8 seconds to shift in the fastest setting?
