General notes: Dunlop Maxaret was the first anti-lock braking system (ABS) to be widely used. Introduced in the early 1950s, the Dunlop Maxaret was rapidly taken up in the aviation world, since testing found a 30% reduction in stopping distances, and the elimination of tyre bursts or flat spots due to skids. Harry Ferguson Research had worked with Dunlop on the Maxaret project, with the idea of the system being integrated into their pioneering four-wheel-drive package. In 1965, the world’s first four-wheel-drive car with Maxaret anti-lock braking was unveiled, the Jensen CV8 FF.
