      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

      That will be the ABS system being brought into play. Sounds like a metal grinding sound. The traction control system has a imitation limited slip diff mode which uses the ABS to break a wheel if it is spinning faster than the other one. You will especially hear it kick in if one wheel is on snow and the other is on tarmac. The ESP system will also call the ABS into play if you were slliding. Eg if you did a sharp turn round an icy bend. It will break the individual wheels as required to help...
