Great thread!

Re the whole driver aids thing. I teach my novices that ABS and TC are your daily trainers. If you are routinely engaging ABS or TC, then you want to work on your control input smoothness (onset/release of throttle, braking onsets, etc) until you are coming up to those barriers consistently and in a controlled manner. Then go about turning them off stage by stage and keep working up to where you are controlling the car in and out of each successive stage under harder and harder conditions.

Seriously - ABS is the best brake trainer there is. It enforces progressive and degressive braking beautifully when you consciously use it as a feedback tool. After a while, you are rewarded with lovely threshold braking burned into your muscle memory.
