Not sure if the electronic brake calibrations are correct, because brakes ought to release. It is likely not helping avoiding using the brakes. I’d get them nice and hot and follow a proper bedding in procedure. While the brakes are an expensive wear item (get them done when the time comes at an Indy shop), introducing excess wear and tear on the driveline,tranny and engine from compression braking will build up and be Uber expensive to repair. I’d be using the brakes as the designers intended.
