ABS limiting at the track/AX?

Had a great day at the NASA AX today - without going into a long drawn-out story (yet ), how many of you find the ABS kicking in when you're trying to brake at the limit and screwing you up?
I'm starting to get a good feel for using the weight transfer in heavy braking to get the back end of the car rotating, but I'm finding that at the absolute limit the ABS kicks in and destroys the balance I'm trying to use.
WD40 mentioned pulling the ABS fuse puts the braking system balance in a 50/50 limp mode, and is a *bad* idea.

Do most of you just deal with this? Is the ABS really telling me the truth on the braking limit?
