Re: NON-Q: How To Improve Ford Pickup Brakes - HELP

<< Engine braking is not different than engine pushing. Remember, I said use
engine braking combined with slow down. Sure you can overtake the heat
dissipation capacity of a transmission and its cooler. You can do this both
with engine braking and with engine pushing.
I believe most converters will lock up when delivering power to the wheels
as soon as conditions are right (accelerating up a hill). When used as a
brake however the converter controller won't command lock-up.
