An indy car has a much bigger contact patch and real brakes

A dragster has a parachute

I know zip about cars though. Weight, brakes, and repeated braking, surface conditions, speed etc all play into I think. I've lost rear brakes from boiling fluid on a long downhill on my 950. How thick the rotor is, pads etc. all come into play too. Braking technique as well
