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

I think you'd encounter the same result going forward.  I believe ABS
senses the DIFFERENCE in rotation from one corner to the next--if there's
more than a certain difference in rpms at different corners, then ABS kicks
in.  Since all four locked wheels are locked at the exact SAME rotational
rate (of zero rpm), you won't trip the ABS system.
