I'm sure that's true. I was shifting a lot, but that's the beauty of the DCT (when it works). I can go down to 2nd to power out of the hairpins, and can shift on apex's all day as long as I'm not in S6.

Guess I'll have to use 3rd gear more next time.

Does anyone know if S4 is easier on the trans temp vs. S5? Thinking it through, it almost seems like S5 would be easier bc of less time spent slipping (and thus generating heat).
