I tend to use ABS to help me judge when I'm at tie limit in snow and ice.
I'll go into it until ABS just starts grabbinb, and then back off a bit.
Of course, depends on just how consistent the conditions are, sometimes

I use the redline fuel cut-off in a similar way, when it goes off, it's
time to shift.  :-)  Actually, that joke worked better on my old RX-7
because it didn't have a cut-off, it had a buzzer that went off about
250RPM over redline, and it worked great as an "it's time to shift"
indicator.  :-)
