... of course it is all a matter of personal preference I suppose.
Personally I have a blast driving every Audi I own from a non-turbo 4kq, the
qtc, the v8 ... even the old Fox GTI!  

I've never been able to do any quantitative studies, but I must say that
even with all the body roll, that multi-link rear suspension on the Avant is
able to take the fun roads around my house as quickly as the ur-q is.  I
have also found that the rear torsen on the v8 makes it so that on
inconsistent surfaces you don't have to put up with the loss of power when a
wheel gets light (which I even experience on the 4kQ).  

I've always wanted to have that big V8 out on a track for some fun ...
perhaps rather than taking the qtc I should take it to Thunderhill next
month instead so that we can see for sure.  Any of those fancy 4ktq's
planning to come down to California in mid-January?
