That would be almost the way nitro cars brake. The guy wants a brake disk and caliper on each wheel. Doable yes, but not in practicality. People have commented about the added weight and complexity that it would put on the cars. Racers meticulously weigh each item that they would add to the chassis and set up the cars differently in order to attain tenths or hundredths of a second faster than the previous race. Besides, why fix something that isn't broken. if a prototype has been made, I think it would be a while before we would see it in the market unless you fabricate it yourself just like the driver of a TC6 or 6.1 with four wheel steering. nonetheless, I wouldn't mind trying one out if one become available.
P.S. If one is racing with mech brakes, would there be some kind of failsafe if the hydraulic line or brake line breaks? I foresee very tweak out chassis after hitting a curb at full throttle. personal experience
