Q: just looking for logical reasons for why someone might be compelled to use the clutch to slow/stop the vehicle when it really isnt necessary especially considering that there is/are a whole assembly of dedicated components which you yourself admit are cheaper and easier to service in place to do that same job. clutch and brake friction materials will only wear during the time when there is slippage. if there is a long down hill stretch and i want to save on wear it is my belief that it is better to allow the clutch to slip for less than a second downshifting to a lower gear than it is to ride the wheel brakes for several miles. the clutch wear will be minimal and the brake wear saved will be significant. .
