You can also use a metal sheet with a very smooth surface that you can bend to remove the prints better. 
Very good idea from the prusa printers.

ABS is awesome. Some of the polycarbon mixes make durable parts. Try taking (a day before) some scrap shavings of ABS and drop them into an empty plastic Advil bottle with some Acetone, enough to just fill it. Seal the cap and shake into a slurry. At the start of heating - paint your printbed area where your part will appear  and you'll have no issues with lifting.

The only thing that worked for me about layer splitting on big parts was to enclose the print area ceiling and side walls to enclose heat and deflect cooling gusts of air. 

PLA is great too but use in Sunlight and overall durability - I'll use ABS  
Slurry will stick to heated blue tape or Kapton as well.
