I think you misunderstood what i was trying to get at with the lockup. Your right jwtarbaj, no ones tires should be locking up because everyone here should have ABS. What im getting at is if there was no ABS, your stock brakes could be locking up your tires instantly. But being that we all do have ABS, ill say your stock brakes can cause your ABS to kick in. and it only kicks in when it detects lockup.
Shoaf, the LAST thing you want in an emergency situation like that is lockup. If you had locked up, you probably would have slid into the back of that truck. You made a split second decision and didn't hesitate. I commend you for that. Nice work.
I have no idea what your talking about joker97. Sorry.
so. ill rephrase my question. If you where to disable your ABS and drive to a speed in excess of say, 40MPH, and where to push the brake peddle to the floor with stock brake components, the tires would lockup. That being said, why are larger components needed to slow the tires down any faster, if they can be stopped instantly by the factory components?
