    Nice! What we want to see:
    2 motors, 2 transaxle, no driveshaft and no torqueconverter;
    regenerative braking;
    motor, inverter and battery thermal managment. If driven too hard risk frying the electronics.

    ABS does something very similar on the drag strip at West Coast, USA. When you try to stop for the timing lights it doesn't apply full braking.

    I'm just not sure if it got any attention from the devs yet, bug reporting in general doesn't seem very effective around here imo.

    It did.
    We are looking at what's possible for that, not exactly easy fix.

    Keke Rosberg did take out his team mate in DTM race once, he said in interview something along lines of "computer told it is too slippery and did not allow me to brake", so you can always use that :D

    While I don't think ABS IRL could deal with trail braking, that's why race car doesn't have ABS installed.

    GT race cars have ABS, there probably are others too, ABS is way above human ability to do braking.

    Modern race cars even adjust braking each wheel, as you turn steering wheel it changes braking effort for each corner to make it turn better, traction control uses torque vectoring to make car go around turns better, there are tons of sensor to make that possible.

    No way you can compete without those in modern motorsport.

    Even ancient basic ABS was useful in trail braking, it kept inner rear wheel from locking up.
