Power! Outdoor temps

Since your car runs after off cold air will it run faster in writer as opposed to summer

Inlet air temp is only one part of the equation. Air density also plays a huge role along with humidity and barometric pressure. Bit cooler temps do help.

Can't forget about altitude above sea level and dew point.

On a N/A mostly stock motor, these things won't make too much a difference. On a boost motor or one that's been highly modified, these things matter and make a difference. That is why professional racers pretty much have a portable weather station with them at the track and "tweak" the car before every run.
