>Do driving school instructors approach a Quattro differently

I Auto-x a lot, and have helped teach driving at solo schools. What I have
noticed with my Q, is that it behaves much more like a FWD than a RWD, so
FWD drive techinques should be used. If nicely balanced and driven, the
AWD will just be easier to control than a FWD (ie, no wheel spin exiting
corners, and the FWD will pull you out of some oversteer problems :-) )
>Have Hans Stuck or Hurley Hayward ever given a Quattro School?
>Has Audi ever sponsored or endorsed a school?
This would be awesome! I've seen footage of Stuck and Hayward doing some
amazing foot work and driving.

I've had hats and various other things thrown at me as I did my usual "rain
dance" during questionable weather events. BTW, once I learned to drive a
bit, I consistantly took top stock time of the day in the rain :-) ---JCG.
