I had a similar problem: DCT over revving, car not accelerating. Dangerous
In a nutshell, pulled off from a stop, car shifting automatically through the gears. It got to about 40mph and suddenly went into neutral. The only way to correct it was to turn the car off and back on again.

I took it to the dealer. They kept it for 4 days and put on about 100miles test driving it.....and could not replicate the issue. So now I have it back with no resolution.

So here I am driving a "ticking time bomb" on busy freeways..
