Actually, compared to the parking lot autocrosses that I usually
run, the track at Waterford felt big. I do wonder though, how all those
cars can run and PASS on that track during a real race.

I did use my brakes very hard. If my RX7 had had those brakes, I would
have taken a couple seconds off.
The first time I braked for the turn at the end of the long back
straight with the Quattro, I had to get back on the gas to get to the turn!
(I have the dual piston calipers, and the race prepped, cross drilled
rotors from Bob D'Amato - they are very effective)
