1. Send car out on it's own = lose it.

2. Max power is limited by law.

3. You will be better off using a better antenna, Directional antenna or boosting the sensitivity of the receiver.

The seller told you bogus.
1. Messing with the TX power in almost all cases meansyou will violate some laws in regards to the use of radio frequencies as these power levels are regulated.
2. If you need better distance use the car outside the city and away from common WiFi stations.
3. Usually it is a far better option to use optimised antennas ;)
