I was able to do the runs in the same direction on the same section of road.
I did one run traveling in the opposite direction on a mild uphill and the
numbers rose to 268hp. Remember these are supposed to be wheel hp not
flywheel...you must add 20% due to drivetrain loss, which would bring it up
too an even 300hp;))
