While straightforward (har-har), you need to remember that SM's advice comes from an era of cars without ABS.
If you have ABS disabled (or non-existent, as in a race car), certainly SM's expertise would apply.
If you have ABS enabled, you can add a bit of trail braking to the mix. But it all comes back to stopping ASAP and limiting upset to the car as much as possible.
Contrary to popular belief, ABS is not an anti-ice braking system.
Nor does it allow a car to stop shorter.
Pulsing the brakes allows you to STEER while braking, whereas if your brakes were locked-up, this would not be possible.[/QUOTE
That's a really good point, but I can even lock up ABS-assisted brakes in track applications when I'm in panic mode (when I'm making this face
). Once they're locked up, it's good (but difficult) to remember front tires don't steer if they aren't rolling. Then the Moss line is your only friend...and a neck brace if that doesn't work out.
