Default ABS - Is it bad for your servos?

Is using the ABS function on your transmitter bad/hard on your throttle servo?

I've heard differing opinions that it is bad for them and also that it's ok, so I wanna clear it up.

from what i heard, it is not very good for the servos

twitching back and fourth at such a great speed will be certainly a great strain on the motor and the gears of the servo

especially if you have a plastic gear servo, it will wear out very fast

I agree.......I burned out 4 servos using the ABS feature on my 3D.

More servo movement...naturally more wear. Not entirely "bad"...simply it will wear out quicker.

adjust the break so that the tires will not lock up until the car is close to stationary, then you don't need ABS

that is right

and plus, one shouldnt brake when cornering anyways, so there is not really a great need for ABS here
