Overreving with DCT

I accidentally overrevved in 1st gear close to 9000 rpm. I didn't think this was possible with DCT. I'm glad I didn't have problems afterwards!

If you are not in "auto" mode the car will not shift on its own and will keep pulling until it redlines

I think this is false. The car will automatically up shift if you hit the rev limiter, even if you are shifting manually.

This information is absolutely incorrect. It will bounce off the rev limiter until you shift it when in manual mode (unless you're in a launch-control run where it will shift for you until you let off the gas during that run).

Not possible.

The Max I've ever seen hit on a DCT car with stock software is 8,550. Hard limit cuts for fuel and ignition are well below 9,000 - you shouldn't be able to go near there no matter what.

Even with 6MT there is no possible way to rev past the hard cut on stock software.

Assuming he is not bullshiting it is very possible that in the spur of the moment he thought he hit 9k. Let's face it, above 8000 RPM our minds and hearts are clouded by adrenaline.

I believe it was over 8500, more like 8700 or 8800.

Launch mode and revs climbed faster than on any of my previous cars. I was in S mode.

The ecu cuts fuel immediately at redline. With no fuel, the revs can't go any higher. Also, with DCT, the transmission will not downshift into a gear that would put you over the rev limit. So with DCT it is essentially impossible to get over the rev limit.

Why? Why would you feel the need to post something that is completely wrong? Is this what you really think happens?
