that said - very bad idea not to engage the handbrake and rely on engine braking alone - you can do the other way round (no gear engaged) but not engaging the parking brake should not be attempted.

nope. i dint want to risk again as i would be away from the vehicle for quite some time . dint want to come back just to see it rolled off somewhere !!
