Well, my '89 100Q has the first kind of clutch. It is a long
throw, and has a linear "grab" throughout the entire throw range.

My '90 20V90Q on the other hand, has the second kind of clutch.
When I borrow it from my wife (not often enough :-), I have to
be careful.

Which is right? Is Batman a transvestite? Who knows....

I suspect that there are two different clutches in the Audi line.
