I've driven stick all my life and DCT for 3 months .. So not sure if I did anything that would have caused this...

Also, given my rear tires are toast... I am assume the the dealership who demo'ed the car might have abused the LC
Your DCT had disengaged the gear, misnomered as a slippage, until it reached a safe operating range in the power band. D mode and Sport off then an instant aggressive drive is a no no for this car

Whenever you are going to get aggressive in your driving turn the Sport button ON and S mode -(if your not acquainted with M mode)
