I AutoX my 2012 SE with DCT. Its not ideal, but can work once you get used to it. In S Mode you can launch hard (In First hold brake with left foot, floor it then release brake to launch). The key is getting used to the S Mode delay especially on downshifts, its takes between 1/4 - 2/3 second from when you push button for the car to actually shift. Once you get used to the timing it works pretty good.

On a side note; even with traction control off the computer seems to get confused about 1/2 through a run if you are loosing traction frequently (not ideal to lose traction in most scenarios). The first 2-3 turns I can get the rear end to break loose by lifting mid corner; but I noticed about half way through a run I can no longer get the same effect; its like the computer wakes up and says NO, you Can Not drive like this... LOL.

With my custom tune you can use S mode and it will shift when you tell it to or 6500 which ever comes first , I hated how stock it shifts on its own

I can also quicken up the shifting and a lot of other things
