Default eldorada speed.

so i paced off a distance today. 93 feet. and i took my himoto eldorada from a stop and raced it to the end of the distance i paced. roughly 3 seconds. after i whipped up a little math. that comes out to around 21MPH. now that is an average speed over the whole distance. so it was really probably closer to 30MPH. sorry. i was bored and thought id share my day with you guys.
