I test drove a V-10. I liked it, but the problem I noticed was, it's slow. I
figure it's the gearing that makes it slow, but it will go the same speed if
it has a heavy load. I love the new Ford Super Duty trucks!

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Rear Wheel ABS Question

I am now driving a 1998 Ford F-150 2x4 with the V6 and the manual
transmission. It now has about 500 miles on it. I was forced into a
moderate braking situation on the road today, when a car pulled in front
of me. The problem arose as I felt the rear-wheel ABS modulate between
eight and twelve times in the course of the stop. I was on bare, dry, and
flat pavement and I have no idea why the ABS kicked in or why I would
want it to reduce my braking power. I was transporting a standard folding
table that was placed unrestrained in the middle of the bed of my truck.
The deceleration was such that the table did not even slide toward the
front of the bed. The coefficient of friction between the table and the
painted metal is obviously much less than that of the friction between my
tires and the dry pavement. My braking distance was quite noticeably
increased. I can understand the ABS kicking in once if one of the tires
was possibly on top of a piece of gravel but the brakes were distinctly
modulated about 10 times when I was nowhere near impending lockup.

I am confident this behavior is not making my drives any safer but is
this normal for the vehicle or do I have a problem with my truck.
