Default brake booster/vacuum booster (off-topic, non-audi related, just about brakes in general)

in a NA car, the vacuum in the manifold is tapped off to help assist the brakes right?

no difference in a turbo car, but it only works when it is not on positive boost , correct?
do u need a really big reservour or something like that?

what happens in a race car that utilises an antilag system?

Default some one told me that the reserve shoud be enough to perform a few heel n toes.

but the thing that is bugging me is how about the antilag that always keep boost high?
