Or maybe it could just be hooked up to ONE of the two clutches, only for use when launching from a stop in 1st gear.

However, if all you're looking for is the excitement of dumping the clutch, VW's DSG offers a "Launch control" function. Press a button, hold the brake and the gas, and when you get off the brake the computer dumps the clutch and lets you burn rubber.
OK; that's what I'm talking aboot!!! I'd take that!!!
