My personal opinion based on several experiences. I drove for 6 years a car without ABS and had a lot of experiences in it. After another car crashed head on with me and totaled my car, now I drive an ABS equiped car, I´ve been driving it for more than a year, and had also lots of experiences.
ABS vs. no ABS Episode 2 (re-upload; HQ)
Re upload of this episode, renders were low quality first, I re rendered
everything on higher quality now.
Inspired in a comment in the previous video I wanted to illustrate that
it´s not about just "stopping a little further than I´d like", I will
start a series of videos about this comparisons. So far this 2 show the
advantages of No ABS, but later I will make some other about the definite
advantages of this system, I´m not a fan of it but it´s a great safety
feature. Remember: I´m not claiming ABS it´s bad and should be removed
from vehicles; I´m saying it has its flaws and right now it should not be
forced upon driver, there should be an option to disable it (just like TC
or ESP) depending on the user needs. Perhaps a button to disable it, having
it always automatically activated when car stars, and user decides IF
driver wants to turn it off)
ABS vs. No ABS - Episode 4
Basically a re-make of Episode 1, with real life footage.
A lot of people claim that since past episodes are 3D representations,
therefore are fake or innacurate.
I know the difference would be much different if surface was wet, oily,
with gravel, mud, etc... My videos are based on day to day conditions.
Also I´m just trying to make a single point : "It is possible to stop on a
shorter distance without ABS"
I know it lets you steer, and all that stuff, but right now I´m not
dealing with it (maybe later). ABS is a safety feature but it always comes
to the driver to manouver correctly under dangerous circumnstances and take
the right decitions to avoid an accident. (like lowering your speed if road
is on low traction conditions, or not speeding while getting to a blind
Here´s me demonstrating what I´ve shown in previous episodes. I´m the
- In 2nd Threshold braking, I missed my braking point (a bush I used as
reference) so I had to brake a bit harder, you can see ABS is disabled
because on the last second my rear wheel locks.
- I changed locations because the tests where on different days, I have to
find a nice lone road to do them, and the tests of threshold braking I made
on the 1st location lacked a lot of references and was very hard to brake
always at the same speed, also I had less road to speed up and keep that
speed before braking.
- I lose speedometer when I disable ABS, how do I know I´m reaching the
same speed? well, I perform an ABS test and look at the tachometer to see
how much revolutions at certain gear I need for that particular speed (in
this case it was 3500 revs in 2nd gear for 55-60 kmph)
- The voice is all weird because its from a text to speech engine, it is
not me talking. I wanted to narrate stuff instead of typing everything like
on past episodes.
The car is a standard production car. Opel Astra with stock brakes, braking
pads are not new (in fact they need to be replaced)
Wheels are Michelin hydroedge, which are great to avoid hydroplaning and
they´re very hard, so they last a long way. There´s no flat stop after
the full lock test.
ABS Sensor & Tone Ring Repair
