I like having my brake split off on its own pedal.  We have upgraded to 10" disks on the rear axle and an aftermarket mechanical caliper.  Stops nice for a lot longer.

yeah man the best is to split them. but I plan on adding a disk brake but I saw this guy on here he bolted the disk straight to the stock transaxle rotor and it seems like that could work with the mechanical caliper too

How well does the spring work in comparison to a solid rod?

the spring actually holds up pretty well it can lock my tires if needed but it brakes rather smoothly ,it also eliminates the need for a return spring . but im still in the testing fase

Bit of a odd way of doing it, but looks like it will work.  Gas and brake are swapped, so don't hit the wrong pedal at the wrong time!

I could see a larger rotor and caliper used on the stock location working.  Still may wear fast due to it spinning faster than the wheels.
