Top Gun, Helena Montana this weekend

Had a very fun time racing at Top Gun this weekend. 150 racers, and 14 in my class of AS. I at least kept it on course, and I had no shot of landing on the podium this year. (Took first place last year in my Vette).

I had a really hard time getting used to the twin turbos at this event. Seems the turbo lag was a biggie for me, and I need to "readjust" my throttle timing to compensate. Six years racing a N/A car has made this transition quite challenging!

Does anyone on this forum Autocross an M2C with the DCT? I'd like to pick your brain..

Thanks in advance!

Sport plus on all settings, and of course T/C full off.

What I was encountering, and found very frustrating is the DCT refuses to downshift when Autocrossing at 10/10's. When it finally accepts a command to go from 3rd to 2nd, or 2nd to 1st, it very delayed..
