Having gone from a manual to a dsg this time I thought that
In slippy conditions without having a clutch to deaccelerate I’d have to use the brake on a dsg hence I thought a better gripping tyre would be useful to reduce slipping ...
I could be wrong of course please let me know if I am
The DSG should be thought of as an automated manual gearbox. Conventional gears and clutch, (although 2 of those). The odd and even gears are on alternate shafts, the clutches are concentric, one for one shaft one for the other. When it selects the driving gear it preselects the next gear it believes you'll need. It's all controlled by solenoids, and the car electronics.

But the drive is always connected to the engine just as in a manual car. So full engine control to slow the car down unlike a torque converter. (OK if you read my other thread about coasting you will see it's possible when you lift off it decouples the clutch, but the lightest touch on the brake pedal or paddles on the steering wheel if you have them, reengages the clutch)

That's not correct, my car has discs all round and it has the 115 engine with manual gearbox, the 95 manual has drums on the rear.
