- Shut the ABS off
- Make a large loop and approach the cones (through the middle) at 30 mph
- Start your braking as you pass the cones
- try it rear only, ABS off
- front only, ABS off
- both, ABS off
- And then do it all again with the ABS on in each case

Compare your results, and use it to get a feel for it.

My 2 cents
Thanks. This what I am planning on trying as soon as it stops raining and the pavement dries out.
