Has anyone ever seen independent proof of this?  I know Audi makes the claim
in all of their literature but I'm still just a teensy bit suspicious ... of
course, most of the quattro cars have also been turbo'd and come with larger
wheels/tires and shorter gears, which makes direct comparisons difficult.

Just because Audi says it's so doesn't make it true ... remember UFO brakes?
