One is to take the throttle actuators out and see if they are sticking ( apparently this has been an issue before ). The other is to try a newer DCT box out of a 2011 model which I know that someone has and is willing to let me try before buying. Hopefully it's the actuators.
Well it sounds like you have some good options. Hopefully it is just the actuators. I think I've read about problems with them before, I can't pinpoint what the issue was though. Maybe a search would turn something up, but I'm a little short on time right now. Either way, good luck and hope it gets resolved soon!
