	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)
