keep ABS or not

Recommended Posts

car is a 99 mustang running in AI. I get in the car today and the ABS light was on. I haven't touched it in a while and didn't quite get a chance to figure out what the problem is yet. A while ago I was tossing the idea around about getting rid of it but decided to keep it for now. anyone have input on driving with and without it? I know alot of the fox guys do without it.

 

Pros:

less weight

I can get rid of the abs sensors on the front hubs to make a better brake duct

 

cons:

chance of flat spotting tires

kinda depends on how good the system is - a really really good ABS system can smoke a good driver - and vice versa, a decent driver can easily beat a mediocre ABS setup.

 

you can still flat-spot tires with ABS, its just harder to do

I removed that on my car, 25 less pounds on the drivers side. As mentioned above, ABS systems differ. The model on my car ('88 Corvette) is pretty poor IMO. But the later year stuff works well.
