Z/28 ABS brakes feature Knock-back prevention

Check this neat feature quoted from the LSX article:

-''In an interesting technical note, the ABS is programmed to “tickle” the calipers with a bit of pressure to fight pad knock-back, the phenomenon where the slight, unavoidable lateral motion of the rotors during hard cornering causes the pads to retreat slightly into the calipers. Knock-back can lead to a nasty surprise at the end of a long straight when the brake pedal needs far more travel to return the pads to intimate contact with the rotors, and the ABS strategy is a clever way to help keep braking performance consistent.''
