been there, seen that.
the best show is when someone arrives and dumps all the juice, skidding
to a stop on the chassis.  a few well placed titanium skid plates add to
the effect.  it's not uncommon to see one parked on the ground.  makes
it harder to steal those $3000 dayton wires...

prolly not enough room to juice an audi suspension enough to hop.
there's a section on a self-levelling suspension in the haynes manual.
nothing in the bentley or the us-spec fiche, so it's obviously not a
