Bibs Posted November 30, 2010 Author Report Share Posted November 30, 2010 Wheels will only turn the car if they're steering and abs allows this to happen, that's the idea behind it as locked wheels are useless for anything as I'm sure you know. Unfortunately it's also, in the big scheme of things, pretty violent with it's on/off oscillations (ie all, none, all, none) which cause it to be much less effective than a sensitive right foot which can, in experienced shoes, be more effective at knowing where the level of traction lies. A harsh activation of the brakes on ice is worse than a gentle touch, it's either in a skid or not but keeping on the 'not' side of skidding through good braking means your still in control of the car. ABS is set up for the majority of times it will be used, in the wet under very heavy braking when all the weight is on the front of the car under extreme braking. It's not set up for light braking in low traction circumstances, I would assume that figuring this into the system would be too much of a compromise.
