I'm sure you can easily find yourself in a situation that will put you on your ass such as in the rain. But the ABS system is going to give you a fighting chance. And every little bit helps. I have felt the ass end slide out on the stock 220's while downshifting, braking and turning on cold tires. I usually do this at the end of the street I work on when trying to make the left hand turn light on my way home. But I just got Pilot powers. Hopefully they're a little sticker before the tire warms up.Wow, so you can just grab a handful and slam your foot down and still be good to go? Is there any sliding of the rear at all? Are there any downsides, other than the shock replacement thing?
