In the last 2 days, I have alternated between 3 of my Audis, the '85 urq, the '87.5 CGT, and the '91 V8q 5spd. I noticed that I have a different driving mode for each. In the urq, I drive sedately but alertly as if ready to pounce. In the V8, I'm sort of in cruise mode, though more cruise missile than cruise ship. In the CGT, it only takes a mile or two and I'm in go-cart mode.
I drove the CGT to work this morning and by the time I was on my way home for lunch I was hitting redline in 1st and 2nd every time and was actually in a bit of a 4-wheel drift momentarily on my usual interstate cloverleaf offramp. I chose to return to work after lunch in the V8.
