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
We're not out here to rough it. We're here to smooth it. Things are rough enough in town.
