Was just going to mention that episode. Granted their method wasn't very scientific, but I think to get any real benefit you'd need to be very particular about where you got your nitrogen from. "Air" is already a large part nitrogen anyway.

Do race teams run nitrogen? I'd think if there was a benefit to be gained they would all be doing it.
