I installed a kill switch (toggle, not momentary). On long mountain descents I'll leave the car in 5th gear, flip the switch to kill the engine, and alternate between clutch in (EOC) to speed up, and clutch out for engine braking & to keep the vacuum booster charged. Less heat into the brakes that way, which is nice because my rotors warp easily :/
