Ask Ingo if he tore anything on his Papyrus V8 that day...


about 2/3 of the way down the page.

I don't think there's anything specific to Audis or V8s relative to dirt
roads and torn cv's.  I've taken all mine up Pike's Peak numerous times and
driven dirt roads whenever I felt like it or needed to, even one especially
nasty one.  I think it's all about wheel placement and speed.  If Those
boots are a bit higher up in the car than other things.  Unless you bounce
down on something or flip something up into one, you're more likely to
scrape hard metal than tear a cv boot.
