I do run with all AI and traffic turned off, which can make a difference, as can weather, of which I'm using the fastest theme, fair weather. Try using 2000/1700 max per cell and 300MB Buffer Pool. That should relieve the system quite a bit. Basically I would find some less aggressive settings which produce a nice stutter free framerate, and then tune to find your optimum levels from there. If you want to see my cfg file let me know, as there may be some other variables not conidered which is making the difference.

It took several nights of tweaking to finally nail it for my system, and it wasn't until the third night that I finally discovered my TBM was causing some of my headaches.
Last night after trying your tweaks i started experimenting with locking frames between 35 and 25 and for some reason setting it to 25 reduced if not almost removed the stutters and the whole experience doesn't feel any slower than when I had it set to 30 or 35.
I will try your suggestions tonight and report back.
