I thought I read the DCT was rated for like 300 something ft-lbs, but that's still not enough IMO to handle abuse. I doubt the electric clutches could handle holding big power.
Nope, only the wet clutch versions go above 200 lb-ft of torque, the dry clutch version is rated for somewhere in the neighborhood of 250-280 N-m or 180-183 lb-ft of torque. The 250 in the DCT250 on the spec page from Getrag indicates its torque capacity at 250 N-m (newton-meters)
