If your using your engine to stop you dont want to release the clutch too fast since it might initiate a spin out, beacuse the engine rpm has to go down gradually and slowly before it meshes with the rpm of your wheels.
what you can also do is, hold the clutch, downshift 1 or 2 gears, tap the accelerator lightly to bring the rpms up, and perform a heel-toe tap on the brake like leo was talking about.
I love doing the RPM rev in between downshifts on faster turns. The sound is very pleasing to my ears
