Default New technology vrs Old?

First of all i'm all for the new technology that infiltrates this hobby, but just wondered after reading the thread on 'whether turbo boost esc's should be allowed....' if, in the case of the really consistent champion drivers the equipment they use now is getting them round the same tracks noticably quicker than say their top of the line brushed systems of a few years ago?
(talking mod class because it's unlimited). If they could, (theoretically) pull that old car out the cupd and race it alongside their 'latest' now... what sort of time improvements would there be?
I guess what i'm asking is has driver ability reached the point where all the new technology isn't making huge differences.
