How much does weight affect quarter mile times? I have a hitch on my car that I use for my small ATV/utility trailer and I'm wondering if I should take it off before I go to the track? It weighs about 40 lbs. How many tenths am I going to lose if I leave it on?

I was told 1/10th for every 100 lbs

If that's the case it won't be worth taking off. I'm not competing for cash I'm just going to run the car for fun and see where she's at.

1/10 sec =~ 100 lbs =~ 10 hp.
