Re: How to drive a quattro?

   Coming out from my final last night at UMD, I took a hard right hand turn onto
   New Hampshire.  It was pouring rain, figured bald tires & a Quattro system
   should make for a cool tailspin, so I punched it.  The front wheels both spun,
   and the car plowed straight ahead towards a median.  Got off the gas & got
   situated, dandy, but how do you make that rear end swing around??  All four
   tires are pretty much bald (and at only 15,000 miles; may be time to rebuild
   that clunky front end, replace the bent control arms, straighten those rims,
   get four of the same type & size tires on there, then maybe align the thing)
   and I've got plenty o' power (IA stage II, K&N, blah blah blah) so a tailspin
   shouldn't be that hard to induce!  Wazza secret?  Don't want to lock the diffs
   just to have some fun in the rain, there's gotta be a way to rallye my turns...

Handbrake . . .

That, or put big fat tires up front and little skinny ones out back!

Then you can send a picture of your car off to Road and Track . . .
