Just a quick comment, well balanced disk brakes will out stop ABS on dry 
concrete, assuming everything is in good shape. They don't put ABS on a 
Viper for a reason. There are also little "accumulators" or shock absorbers 
for the front and rear break lines that help if the rotors aren't perfect. 
ABS works better on ice and snow, but nothing works good there. ABS is good 
for sig. others, etc.  Why not go all the way to traction control, active 
suspension, etc.  Those actually help if you are not used to driving at the 
limit. Toms   ( flame suit zipped up).
