Sounds odd to me, because cold dense air is favored for intake. Ford even developed a cold intake system using the A/C a few years ago.

Maybe the air the body of the car is passing through is thinner?

Could this be yet another reason why the wide open spaces of the Bonneville salt flats hold all the world land speed records?

EDIT: I found an old post of mine from 2005:
