Sorry to bring this back, but wanted to pose a question here..

There is one annoyance with DCT (at least in my mind), where while accelerating in manual mode, flooring gas pedal automatically downshifts. This is particulary annoying when I already downshifted to engine "sweet" spot (around 3500 - 4000 rpm), and then tranny shifts it into lower gear and puts it in the dead rpm spot 5500 rpms+.. Is there a way to turn this feature off?
