Torquemonster said:I've heard some top race drivers claim they could stop quicker without ABS - but to be honest I'm not convinced... if they can the ABS is either an old tech unit or these drivers have a feel that borders on supernatural.
Non-ABS cars stop faster in dry conditions. Car and Driver or one of the auto-magazines did an article on this subject a while back. Been a while, can't remember all the details. I can remember them doing a lot of breaking comparisons with/without ABS in different weather and surface conditions.
Personally, I would prefer to have ABS, for Panic stopping or for any other surface irregularities I may encounter while screwing around. ABS has saved me from ending up in a ditch or cornfield numberous times. Fortunately, I have not had any moments in the Viper yet.
