Have you considered the impact of prior debates and anecdotal evidence of a performance difference among various DCT drivelogic modes? What is your default mode for such runs?

Just FYI I have argued that modes with surge (i.e. S4->S6) must provide ever so slightly better performance since it is like power shifting a MT and the short duration of surge and slightly broken loose (or maybe on their way to breaking loose) tires will provide improved acceleration. Others have claimed that under repeated testing S2 outperforms S4->S6. I do think the shifts in S2 are faster than in S4->S6 but there is no helpful surge. Of course I think "repeated testing" was much more of a casual observation. Your data might help settle this small debate.
Thanks, I always run in S6 mod doing any vbox or performance type of runs.
