[urq] Brake 'upgrade'?

Hey I understand - that's a lot of projects.....I just hope you can get the
urq done on time for the West Side UPG this Fall in Park City, UT!

I have not ried the A4 brake idea- I do like the idea of a bigger rotor than
276mm (what size are they anyway?) and _lighter_ calipers than the heavy
G60's.  I'm also not sure of braking power A4 vs G60...would the A4 offer
better power?

... yes, I know ... thanks anyway for the kick in the pants Brandon ... it
may be getting to the point I'll be able to follow through.  Haven't you
already tried this?

Let's see, I've done the timing belt on V8 #1 (but the car has a bad wheel
bearing and bushing I need to attend to), the complete engine swap in V8 #2
... lately I've been working with Tom to get my Fox back into active service
... and out of my driveway.  I'm a bit torn as to whether I work on the
Avant or the urq next ... that PT engine and new transmission are beckoning,
and with the home projects that are also outstanding it would be good to
have the "sport/utility vehicle" back in service.  The urq needs to have the
engine gone over before I can get to the brakes ...
