I will miss the opportunity to launch hard, but that is the only function that is not available on the ZF8.
I've never done a hard launch with a dual clutch. I'm sure it's amazing.

You can do a hard launch with the ZF sport AT.
Put the drivers mode in "sport+" and turn DSC/DTC completely off with the separate switch.
Put your foot on the brake, rev the engine to around 2000 rpm and let the brake go with WFO throttle. It launches very hard and fast.
You'll have to experiment with different rpm and modulate the throttle, because it can smoke the tires from a standstill if done that way.
