As one of the few who has had both a 6 speed & a M-DCT.I had great fun in the 3 years that I tracked my 6 speed car but the one real issue that I did have was the feeling that I would money shift while loaded up in a corner where I needed to upshift in to avoid hitting the limiter.Never did do that but it was always in the back of my head that I could do it which is odd after tracking & racing normal H pattern cars for years.
The biggest difference with my 11 with the DCT is having an extra mid ratio which allows to run the car higher in the power which quite helps the off corner acceleration and up the long uphill straight at tracks like Mosport where I use 2nd to 5th gears.This car is quite a bit quicker due to this and faster shifting sure does not hurt and it sure is nice to know that you will not spin the motor into death throes if you pooch a shift!Yes I do miss some of the satisfaction of exucuting proper shifts both on and off the track.
