better without abs?

iv been in several situations where my abs has done nothing but cause more problems. driving in snow you get almost no breaking controll. in wet or even dry pavement slamming on the breaks the abs keeps you moving... you can stop way faster without it. anyone running without abs on?

I believe in the how to section that tells you how to use a switch to make abs selectable. This way you can decide whether you want it on or of at the click of a button.
