In normal driving, ABS helps a TON in emergency situations. However, they do seem to be a little iffy when you're intentionally pushing the car. There's a great cloverleaf getting onto the freeway going home from work, and if there isn't a line of cars I'll push it a bit (just to make sure the Nittos are still stickier than the stock tires, right?), but if the metering light is on at the bottom and I brake before I'm all straightened out, the electronic nannies are very not happy. I mean I know you always want to brake in straight line when you're pushing it, but you'd think I was attempting to J-turn it or something the way they nag. And with the peddle pulsing and getting a bit of a slow-surge-slow-surge pattern, it does feel disconnected and unnatural.
