Thats what the ABS disconnect switch is for. On my V8
I had to put it in reverse to keep from hitting the
"maroon" in front of me on a snow covered street. She
decided that her 4 foot wide car wouldn't fit in the
12 foot lane in front of her and locked em up. Almost
at a dead stop the pedal was pulsating and the V8Q
was heading full speed slow, pulsating pedal twords
Whiplash Wilmas bumper. Couldn't get a toothpick between
the bumpers, but no contact. It's a definite unforgettable
experience when it happens the first (and only) time.
I've driven 3 other V8's, and they all act the
same way on slippery/snowy surfaces, so you should always
deactivate the ABS to get the "snowplow" effect for braking.
... It is bad luck to be superstitious.
