Orin--good point.  In a discussion w/ Ned a couple years ago, he indicated
the stock Audi pads are quite good, better in fact than many aftermarket
pads, just pricey.  

Pat--when you figure out a nifty solution for you 4000, wanna figure out my
200?  oh yeah--its about 3700 lbs :)  I too felt serious fade after a few
hard laps, especially going into turn 9 (at the end of the back series of
turns, setting up for the chicane back onto the front straight).  turn 1 was
easier to set up for since the turn was wider, faster.
