Re: ABS in reverse (was 10/10ths)

The reason I asked the question in the first place, was that mine
definately did not work once. I was backing down hill on ice very slowly
and hit the brakes. All four wheels locked up and slid. Maybe if you are
going slowly enough, the ABS doesn't come on as it thinks the car is at
rest. It did work great going forward, but I was always going faster
when I applied the brakes. I wish I had done further testing while I was
in the snow.
