Racing question

I am getting the dinan tune in 2 weeks and my friend in his porsche wants to race.

Do I keep it in DS, shift myself with the paddles, or let steptronic in manual mode shift for me at each redline to get max from the engine? Sorry I am new at the steptronic feature. I have used it (obviously) but it seems like DS in its shiftpoints so I let it shift for me when in m mode and doing spirited launches.

my car gets better when i shift it.
since the peak torque reduces at 5800 rpm, you should paddle shift at 6k rpm. to get best results.

If you floor it and hold the pedal all the way down the whole launch, does DS and D have the exact same shifting points? Seems like it does to me...

Hmmm, never tried it but that may hold true if you floor it. DS mainly keeps your rpms higher at any given point when your not smashing the pedal. Downshifting quicker, etc...
