Default Brake Systems

While mowing the lawn tonight on the zero turn mower, I had a really crazy idea. Why don't they have 4 wheel independent brake systems on our cars yet? Imagine if we could turn the car like the zero turns do by locking up one wheel independently.

I have seen independent brakes on the F1 model cars but the engineering is pretty complex. Don't know if its possible on offroad with all the suspension travel.

Yeah, the funny thing I notice sometimes is that the RC cars are sometime ahead of what actually is put to use in real racing.
