Having spent the last weekend at Heartland Park in Topeka chasing, being
chased by a St. Louis gentleman in a (? color) is it the Titanium or meteor
gray RS6, I heartily second Scott's observation, "No Virginia, you can still
be fat as Santa Clause AND considered a fast girl."  Individual lap for lap,
that thing was moving.  I think the remaining Achilles' heel is in
sustainability.  I suspect that after 3 or 4 consecutive really hard laps
the larger cars tires, and depending on setups etc. brakes may start to go
away a bit faster.  I suspect a good portion of the experience must have
been the driver of the RS6.  Seems to me that last time I ran with one on a
track outside of Las Vegas, the Rx8 didn't have that much of a problem in
catching the California RS6 .... or maybe I'm just not as quick in the damn
Cayman as I could be in the Rx8.  

Nice write up Paul.  Now, all this uber speed testing took place on just
exactly what :-), high speed track facilities?   Oh, I know, the JNR place
just down the road, ..... right next to the county lock up.
