You just can't get it, can you? The magnitude of the effect does not matter; I just don't want a semi-intelligent intervention as a part of the breaking system unless it is safety related (even then I'd like to have the option of turning it completely off), and that is my personal attitude toward technology and handling. The system is there to make a difference—no matter how small and even if it is under certain conditions. And as I've said several times, maybe I do like coming to abrupt jerky stops. You simply don't understand how some people relate to their cars, and what their personal philosophy dictates as to what is appropriate in the design of a car and what is not (for themselves). You clearly are not sophisticated enough in these matters to have formed a philosophy of your own, not to mention to respect the principles of others. Go to some custom made car shows, talk to the creators, learn about the different philosophies, and maybe then, you'll have some perspective and clue as to what I am talking about. Oh, reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance might help as well. Good luck man!
What's the saying? "Give someone enough rope......."
I've said all I have to say on this matter.
