Hello Mr Hobson
The engine RPM not dropping fast enough on these car when driving them hard is a known glitch in the computers programing.The dual mass flywheel also is not helping either.Audi stance is the cars are fine they are not meant to be race cars.The fuel map in the computer is designed to give the best performance and reliability and fuel economy while the dual mass is there to give the smoothest and reliable clutch engagement. I know a lot of people who have had there cars chipped or flashed and a single mass flywheel put in for better performance and it has improved the over rev issues.
