I have been told by some reliable sources that the clutch packs in the DCT cars has been changed from the 2010 cars onwards. Same year as the competition package was unveiled. This could be one of the reasons that would allow it to be faster too. Correct me if I am wrong on this link.

how did you get those led-like angel lights?...

Didn't someone figure this out already and determined it had to do with the DCT gear ratios?
