Talks about what not to do, but should offer more situations of "how to do." He should have talked about leapfrogging and how to handle a 90 degree turn from a stop.

I get the leap frogging but what is the issue with a 90 degree turn from a stop? I haven't noticed anything special in that case with the DCT.

I wouldn't be so harsh. While that video is more to do with what not to do, it does provide several tips on what to do. Granted, instead of simply stating "don't creep," he could have provided an example of what to do instead.

What does engaging in a 90 degree turn from a stop have to do with the clutch? I can understand the suggestion to always move the vehicle when turning to reduce stress on the steering components. Perhaps you suggest that there may be undue stress to the clutch when engaged with the steering wheel to one extreme. I'm guessing.

This was posted a while back and as many times as I view it including now, I always manage to either forget a step or noticed that I keep doing something wrong.
Especially the inching forward in stop and go traffic. I need to remember keep some space between my car and the one before me. To he11 with the person behind me, honking me.

As for the + - upshift/downshift, this is the third vehicle with it and although he does explain it, i have yet to figure it out. Guess I'll just leave it in drive. lol

The situation with turning 90 degrees is that you're pulling into traffic. For instance, if you're turning left at a light, many people are simply used to sitting at a light with the wheel turned, waiting for an opening and mashing the throttle. The torque converter will move them, they don't have to worry about slipping.

With an automated manual transmission, if you mash the throttle, it has to slip the clutch when the engine rpm's are too high. If it drops the clutch, it'll either bog down the engine, or spin out the tires. The manufacturer doesn't want that to scare the driver, so they make it have unneccessary added slippage. If you mash the throttle, you can hear it negotiating engine rpm and clutch slippage.

Before the last software update, i know there were a few situations of no-go while trying to do it this way. Or the negotiating of the engine rpm and clutch slippage scared some people from the lack of anticipated forward progress.

The way I do it, is I anticipate the opening in traffic. Right before the opening comes up, I keep my wheel straight and start creeping forward to get it in gear and get the clutch to start engaging. Then at the opening, i get aggressive on the throttle and turn the wheel. Doing it all in one fluid sequence of events. Minimal clutch slippage but still giving an aggressive throttle to get me through the turn.

Thank you for your explanation.

It is poor practice to wait for a turn with the wheels turned left or right. If preparing for a left turn and you get rear-ended, your car could be forced into the oncoming lane of traffic.

Am I the only once who noticed him state the vehicle in the video being a 2016 model? I have the same exact vehicle and it is a 2017. I thought this new body design and wheels were only available on the 2017 model.

Just my two cents...

The redesign happened with the 2016 model year that went on sale in 2015.
