I get so upset when folks hit their brakes on a downgrade/downslope! As the owner of a CRX HF, I know where my car's "mojo" is....when a downslope comes, I accelerate into it. At some point I get light on the accelerator (or completely off of it if my speed gets way too fast), but my main goal is to get well into that incline that I'm going to encounter with as much of the momentum/speed/"MOJO" that I've built up on the downhill portion. Don't get me wrong; I don't coast up the incline...I get into it with a light-to-medium acceleration, so I can (hopefully) make that incline almost unnoticeable to the car's engine. If it turns out to be a steep enough incline, so be it...but I've certainly gained as much momentum on the downhill that I can possibly make work for me. That is, unlike all of the boneheads that hit their brakes until they get to the bottom of the valley --only to hit the gas to start screaming back up the next incline (oye!) Those are the people who steal my car's mojo 'cuz I'm stuck behind them.
