In article on Touring Sedan Racing in European Car. Driver of Audi 90 said
that the quattro system helps not in getting traction (the super wide
racing rubber takes care of that), but in delaying braking till the
absolute last moment. Quattro keeps the rear wheels from locking up as
easily as the competition.
