I've parked mine in the garage, and I run with a full-size spare in the ur-
quattro.  This may not be an option in the US version, because of the rear 
bumper attachment.  It takes 1/3rd of the boot space in mine ...

But I've often wondered, staring at the digestive biscuit stacked at the end of 
the garage, whether anyone has ever put _FOUR_ on an ur-quattro and tried to 
throw it around a bit?

If not, is anyone game for a try at the next UK track day?  An ur-quattro on 
four motorcycle tyres?
