    Yup, dual-clutch transmissions don't like stop and go very much. They tend to get herky jerky - the Porsche PDK and BMW M-DCT is already much improved over the 1st-gen system in my GTI, however.

    ahh, a Foxborough stop off 495. you guys love the photo ops!
    It's starting to sound like even PDK is no match for nasty traffic. And it wasn't even summer--I wonder how bad it would fry if you did this in worse weather?

    Is it jerky because it's hot (the friction properties changing) or does the car purposely engage the clutch more aggressively to reduce additional heat build up? And does the car even know the temperature?

    Ferraris with the F1 transmissions, at least the 355 and 360s *model* heat build-up. There's no sensor. AFAIK, they don't do anything except beep at you when they decide the clutch is getting hot.
