Over the years, I've had a number of people tell me that their car achieves a certain quarter-mile time or has shown a particular power output on a dyno.

When I have expressed mild scepticism, they have become aggressive and said things like "I bet you $100 it does".

My simple rejoinder has always been- "Show me the drag strip ticket (or before/after dyno readout) for which I don't need to pay you $100".

No-one has ever produced one...

As ever, I would be happy to be proved wrong on such a point and celebrate the performance with the owner.
