While cornering, ABS in is these cars is nothing short of hazardous. Rather than being able to able the brakes in a controlled fashion as you start, progress, or exit a turn to compensate for extra speed, or off line issues, the ABS will completely eliminate what ever traction you had. Since most of auto-crossing is turning, I find the ABS gets in the way and does not allow for mid-turn corrections.
If you have to brake in the middle of corner, or even worse at the exit of one, you are doing things way wrong and no ABS system can fix that. The only correction for that one is that nut behind the wheel.

Do not expect that ABS will be able to correct your mistake of braking too late in the turn or to compensate for the bad tuning of your suspension. Unfortunately, lots of people would rather complain about the brakes or whatever else, instead of blaming themselves, but at least that is what makes us humans...unless you are Mark Dadio
