I have ABS on my Airtronics M11, but I've never used it. I think using the ABS and traction control in the M11 would make me a lesser driver. I'd rather learn to drive with better control in my fingers.

I don't even use exponential.

No abs, It would be fun to play with. But its hard on servos and battery life.

Just set your car and brakes right and you won't need ABS anyway. Its also nice to have a radio like the M8 that has a button near your thumb to increase or decrease brakes as your driving.

All radios have ABS, it's called an endpoint adjustment.

Yeah dont use the ABS the super fast pulsing it takes to mimic ABS is a servo killer.

+1 That causes your throttle servo to spazz out over time.
