Default reply to ABS claims of being the same as non ABS

May have been driver error, but that dog that jumped on the freeway in front of traffic moving at 70+ didn't help. Now to the ABS claims. In the 80s I used to race at Riverside California race track. I raced in the vintage class with a early 60s Jag XK120. They don't even allow cars on the track with ABS due to the GREATER distance it takes a rolling object to stop as compared to a pure friction lock up. Same on NASCAR and most all other tracks. In short, nothing stops like a melting rubber tire locked solid onto cement. Sorry for those of you that have been lied to by the OEM'*. I work for one of the OEM'* as an engineer and this was supported by the braking department but will never be admitted to in the general public arena. Thanks for all the advise on larger and better pads, I need to know where to get them besides JC Wit.

Police drivers practice doing 4 wheel lock ups. I figure they have a reason. I just enjoy the ride.

Police cruisers have much stickier tires......even without ABS, they could get stopped alot quicker than me......but now all local PD cars are ABS equipped........
