Yes but is it actually the TCS itself or that the DCT clutches are misbehaving? Would slipping transmission clutches somehow play havoc with the TCS? I don't know the tie in between the two but I thought traction control generally worked related to the anti-lock brake system from wheel sensors sending wheel slippage info to a processor and braking info./force back to the slipping wheel(s). I can't see how turning the TCS off makes the trans work better but I don't doubt that it's occurring.
