Only if you can't drive for shit. Any competent driver would scarcely
use the brakes.

I've seen plenty of idiots on Genting who evidently do not know how to
drive, to the extent of setting their brakes on fire.

The fact is, a competent bus driver can do the whole descent without
touching the brakes once, except at the bottom near the guard house.

You don't need to change the brakes, you need to change your driving

All you need to do is to use low gears and low speeds on the descent.
It is not hard at all.

Anyone relying on brakes is incompetent.
