To Kickdown or not to Kickdown?

I have been reading a ton of different theories on whether or not to use the kickdown on a C6 Transmission. What do all of you think?

Also, I'm wondering if I might have broken something. You know the nut that holds the kickdown bracket to the C6 Transmission? Well, I put a wrench on that nut to adjust it slightly and all of a sudden the nut came loose along with the entire bracket and the shaft the nut and bracket are connected to that is inside the transmission. I was then able to pull that entire shaft out. Is that bad?

Thanks!

The kickdown is there to be used as and when needed , dependant on type of driving / conditions , but can be very handy at times . As for " Is that bad? " , YES !!!!
