Do you have a car with  ABS brakes? What size tires? What make and

it should be fairly easy to do the experiment yourself and bring the
results here.

well, Bob, I wasn't the one making the claims.  YOU made the claims.

And you continue to insist that you have no responsibility to back up
the very claims that YOU made.

You continue to insist that "I let the ABS work and it braked fine,
therefore I had no need to test the braking performance" is actual data.

Too bad, I've done the experiment and the tires and brakes work great.
The ABS holds the tires right at the point of lock-up and these
Consumer Reports rated, 4/5 dry stopping, tires hault the car very
quickly. They have do it so often I don't even have to wonder about

As for the braking distance you want to measure:

- you won't do the experiment yourself
- you won't hire someone else
- you won't hire me, the one you already doubt

So it really comes down to your problem, not mine, my bitch.

What experiment was that?

You claimed that braking distance was unaffected.  What experimental
data do you have that led you to that conclusion?

Psssst:  "The ABS worked and the car came to a stop" is not experimental
data that leads one to conclude that "braking distance was unaffected".

One of the useful things a troll does is provide a way to introduce
more facts and data. In this case, how a small, donut spare tire can
work without causing the car to run into the ditch when the brakes are

The small tire works because the ABS modulates the braking force to
keep the tires from locking up. They stay just at the verge of lockup
which gives very close to the maximum braking force. Otherwise, the
first time someone had to stop with a donut spare, it would lock up,
the other would still be turning and the car would swerve. Instead,
the ABS balances the braking per wheel to keep the car straight and
controllable regardless of tire or wheel size.

But as for my bitch, if he were not a sociopath, we would observe:

o 'Elmo' is too lazy to run the experiment
o 'Elmo' is too cheap to hire a 3d party to run the experiment
o 'Elmo' is too poor to hire me to run the experiment

But a sociopath uses words to manipulate others and that is what we
have here. Fortunately, he is so my bitch.
