That seems very strange,
so what you are describing, is when you want to pass you mash the pedal but the car just revs likes it’s in natural so instead of accelerating the car is decelerating?
I think traction control (aka fun control) is kicking in and killing your power.
Repeat what you are doing but with the DCT off, report back.
