if you want more power, go to the beach.
every 500 feet above sea level costs you .10 of a second in the quarter mile. i really got a taste of this on the weekend. i live quite a ways above sea level, but i recently took a road trip to my home town, which is a bit lower in elevation. while i was there, i started playing with my g-tech. here is what happened.

at home away
16.7sec 16.29sec
89mph 91mph
133hp 142hp

i did quite i few runs with the g-tech, and all of the readings were very close. i am guessing that if i got down a little closer to sea level, i would run quicker still. and probably even quicker if i threw out my golf clubs, sub box, spare tire and jack, and mabey my girlfriend too.
