For the phase 3 "E-brake"(electron brake) a higher voltage capacitor with enough capacity to hold 5-10HP of eletrons thrown at it when on the brakes .@13.7v 120A= 1644W/2.2HP ( the inefficiencies of the charging system ~50% ) ~5HP@13.7VDC with a 24v cap @120A you can increase the strength of your e-brake closer to that 10HP strength .

I live in "Grade Territory" (long steep mountain climbs) my prior thoughts on this E-brake involved a power dissipation system,dump load for when I run out of storage. I was thinking maybe a Jacob's Ladder big enough to dissipate 25-50HP. Call it a Jake Brake.
