The 15v supply would help. Also, you could add a "diode and resistor in series" in parallel with the other gate resistor, so that turn off has a lower resistance than turn on. Turn off gets stuck at the miller knee, and only has like 4v or something to help it turn off, whereas turn on gets stuck at the miller knee, and has 8v to push it out (since it's stuck at around 4v again, but on its way up instead of down).
