Nice write-up. I can't wait to have a manual car again so I can do this.

To anyone questioning the safety of this, your car's brakes should be able to overcome your engine at full throttle, this is barely any throttle. And there is the clutch in a manual and neutral in an automatic. I'm not saying I would trust the average driver with one of these, but if you have a plan and pay attention, it shouldn't be an issue.
Still probably illegal to get caught using, though. :P
