Question Upshifting mid-corner in S6 ?

Question for DCT track junkies: do you upshift mid-corner using S6 mode.

Let me elaborate my question. Using MDM and S5 in a straight line, I can clearly feel the "surge" on upshifts. However, I found that when I upshift mid-corner the DCT seems to read the conditions (i.e. lateral acceleration) and does a butter smooth upshift as to not upset the car. I found this extremely useful, as you can always maximize the power band regardless of the car's cornering attitude.

So does the DCT behave the same way in S6 (obviously with DSC off )?

I have yet to find a corner where I can try this out safely. I do not want to spin at 100mph...





I did , but couldn't find...
