Default Re: [EVDL] Potbox flaking - where to get a new pot? (Manual Transmission)

With a clutch. :-)

More seriously, a belt-driven alternator seems like a good choice; it
performs a useful function and should provide enough resistance to
slow down the motor pretty quickly.

Also, some manual transmissions will have better synchros than others
and some will just be less suited to running clutchless.
