hey I wonder if this can be fix by doing a rev match manually by yourself. I think i start to understand exactly what dct delay is now.

In my SMG, I get these delay all the time because the trans doesn't know/or too slow to understand what gear it should be in on deceleration. So if I want to accelerate again, I just simply downshift by myself and blip the throttle. I can do this very quick from 4th down to 3rd, and 2nd, then accelerate again. All can be done within 1 second.

Maybe you guys should do the same in your DCT to avoid this issue.
