abs shouldnt extend the amount of time it takes to stop.. its meant to do the opposite. you cant prove you would have stopped faster had you not had it. if your sure its dodgy.. more likely its got a fault.

mines barely kicked in at all anyways, maybe three times, not really needed it. once when i test drove my car (and scared the crap outta my dad..  :D) and others when having to brake for people stepping out. the town centre here is cobbled in places "olde look" and when wet its a nightmare. i also love my traction control most of the time, but its a pain others.

over here disabling your abs is illegal, it has to be functioning to pass the MOT.

Man, anyone who gets their ABS disconnected has got to be a dumb ass mutha fucka. It's there so you can CONTROL your car when you brake. Lets say them two girls cross the street and you gotta brake FAST. You hit your brakes, but it's not gonna cut it - you gotta turn your car away too. Here's where the difference is - without ABS, your shit's out of control and you can't steer away when your wheels are locked. With ABS your wheels won't lock up and you can steer away, still in control of the situation. Saying you don't want to take the risk of an accident - man, getting rid of ABS is like begging for an accident.

So once again, you think you're smarter than all of the scientists, researchers, and manufactures who made the ABS brakes...

Do you really think companies would spend all that time/money on developing something that wouldn't help you?

Go play on some train tracks....

Ok like 3 months ago I was driving to school in the morn (dry conditions/sunny day)...and I used this shortcut through a narrow neighborhood street. Ok so imagine 2 narrow lanes and cars parked on each side. Now I was driving on the right side heading west going about 30 mph and this fucking moron that was parked tried to do a U-turn in front on me from the right side street parking...so I immediately slammed on the breaks the car stopped and then the ABS hit in...it felt like I was hydroplaning luckily there was a left turn available and I just took a hard left while in ABS mode...thank god no pedestrians/ cross traffic was present otherwise I would have been screwed. This is why I hate ABS brakes.

??? ABS just pumps your brakes for you. Maybe you should get yours checked. Just don't go to National City to have them check it. You may not have any brakes when you get your car back, lol. Seriously abs should work everytime you stop. braking hard or not.

If you didn't have anti-lock brakes, you woulda slid right into the guy...

You can't turn when your brakes lock up...

Dummy.

Since its obvious you don't have a car with anti-lock brakes...just because the anti-lock brake system is activated doesn't mean your brakes would have locked up.

I could have easily braked in time without skidding before hitting the guy.

Retard.

Yup.
ABS makes you steer clear even if you're slamming the brakes.. that's the genius about it.
That situation a nightmare without ABS, please believe it Max.

"I would have time to steer clear even without ABS" <<-- Maybe this time, maybe not the next..
ABS have saved so many lives, it's not even funny.
