Seems like if you aren't worried about keeping someone in big trouble
from using engine braking (breaking too) to stop a car with failed
brakes that someone could set up something to disengage the clutch if
the engine revs climb too high (centrifugal disengagement?). I bet a
good design would sell well to those E36 M3ers.
