>stopping distance should be proportional
to the square of speed, so we would expect John's numbers to be about 20%
higher than those taken at 60 mph; or about 218 feet on stock tires.
Since I believe the original tires were a major limiting factor<
Why? Although it is true that the kinetic energy increases with the square
of speed (1/2MV*2), barring brake fade and if tyres are the limiting factor
the brakes should be capable of a constatn decelleration and the first
derivative of a square function is linear.
