If you are talking top end, the car dont matter much. Then it's a matter of a hot modified motor, a free drive train (means work you have to do with the drive train). If the car dont need to be race legal, you can throw in extra batteries, remove the front diff etc.
Theoretically, a shaft car has more torque at lower speeds, while a belt car has more top end - given all other factors are the same.
If we are talking fastest on the track - most laps in 5 minutes - the 80% is due to the driver AND chassis setup, 15% to the equipment like motor and batteries and 5% due to the car.
