Am I crazy? I was approaching a roundabout Friday in the snow storm we had here, and I downshifted from third to second gear and something NEW happened. My ABS kicked in. I’m 92.7% sure I wasn’t on the brakes yet (or if I was it was with barely any pressure), did the ABS kick in because the front wheels started to spin SLOWER than the rears, given my downshift?

I’ve never had that happen before. Anyone else? Or am I nuts??

Edit: 2004 Mazda3 no TC or DSC just ABS.
