    Driving off a downhill (manual transmission)

    We all know it's better not to overheat your brake pads while driving off a harsh slope. I personally drive a Ford Focus Mk1 (2001, front brakes use a braking disk, rear ones use drums), I prefer manual over automatic whatsoever but over time I will have to go on trips and drive off mountains so I would eventually have to learn how to "engine brake".

    I know the trick shift a gear down, but let's take for instance:
    I'm driving off a slope and I'm in 2nd gear, it will eventually rise my RPM and at a certain point there's a turn so I have to soft my car out, shall I go with regular brakes? I mean is it okay to only apply the engine braking when I want to slow down, because I think you gotta be fast if you wanna do it correctly and not fall off possibly?


    You may post trolling answers too, but I would like some serious responses too.

    Engine break is for managing speed without constantly breaking. (Speed limit)

    Break -> downshift is better than being on neutral and constantly breaking.

    Stay safe and break when It's needed, better pay for disks then getting into shit...

    I drag a 2x4 to slow down over time and stick a metal beam into the wheel spokes for sudden stops.
