My experience in this, also, is the exact opposite.  Admittedly my
ur-quattro is a 1988 MB - but the brakes have only minor enhancements.
The M3 I regularly run against is a 1992.  He has _NO_ chance in the
curves - my only hope of keeping up with him is for something to slow
him on the straights.

He's now looking for an ur-quattro, BTW.  And he wants to keep the M3.
