The article actually contradicts itself with this statement:
"Because these brakes dissipate heat more effectively, they reduce brake fade. Brake fade occurs under high temperatures, can be caused by boiled brake fluid, and results in a soft pedal and elongated stopping distances."
Most people know that the limit of a braking system would be attributed to the tyres grip on the road....BUT under heavy load, Bigger more efficient brakes stop problems like Brake Fade, where normal brakes might suffer and thus offer better braking distances in those situations.
