I've got a 2014 passat TDI and the lag from a stop is just outright dangerous at times when you need to jump into traffic or cross a large road.
Does the DSG, being more advanced and similar to a standard transmission, have more capability to handle rev dropping into drive without damage?
Will the clutch absorb the energy and seamlessly transfer it to the gears?
Also, does the DSG do any disengaging when you are stopped with foot on the brake and push the throttle to get the revs up before starting? Is this dangerous to do? I feel the car lurch forward if I gently hit the gas while stopped on the brake, so I'm thinking maybe it doesnt disengage, but its hard to tell as it seems like it may do something after it detects you are stopped and on the brake.
