Another thing to consider is alignment. Whats best for cornering is not always best for braking. I suggest as others have in this thread to practice some threshold braking to get a feel for your car. Learn to modulate the pedal to avoid lock up. Even with the new cars, some good drivers can get better 100-0 distances with the ABS turned off vs mashing the pedal to the floor with ABS. The harder you push the pedal in a panic situation with ABS, the longer it takes to "reset". Now with the faster processing speeds, it's much better, but the early ABS cars weren't great for track cars.
