Alright, I have a question.  I've got  hte stock Audi brake garbage on my TQ
right now.  If I turn off the ABS and stomp on the brakes, I can lock all four
wheels adn come to a stop REAL quick.  So, why would I want to consider
upgrading the brakes?  If I can lock all four wheels with what I've got, what's
the advantage?  The brakes can't outperform the tires right??  Is the only
reason so the brakes keep their cool?  I know how well high temperatures and
brakes go together, so is this the only reason for upgrading brakes???
Enquiring minds want to know.
