Admittedly my initial speed estimates are for top end road speed.  What I
haven't admitted yet is that the speed estimate was at my MAXIMUM
transmission reduction of 9 to 1.  If you may recall, my second generation
Tyng Tech trannys are setup for easy ratio changes.  That 13.5 MPH
battlefield speed may yet be achievable!   ;-)

I guess I'll have to get to work on that roll bar...
