Re: ABS on rear brakes on 90 CQ?
>From description, doesn't sound like you were braking. If rear tires were
such that they broke loose before fronts during non-braking cornering, ABS
won't do any good; have to be braking to have it work; even then, I wouldn't
count on it ALWAYS eliminating an oversteer condition. I have had the
back end come around slightly occasionally when cornering in snow on my
'90 Coupe Quattro.

Works (should) on all 4 wheels !
