Mike got it right. The gains in centripetal force due inceased mass from Force(friction) = |mass*gravity|*(Coefficient of Friction) are outweighed by the increase in inertia from Inertia = mass*radius^2

Sorry about the unnecessary math, that’s just the easiest way I can think of explaining it while providing some reason as to why
