Wouldn't it just be 5 1/3 mph (32/6) :?:

David

32mph = 51.49kmph
divide by 6 = 8.58 kmph
divide by 60 = .14 km per min
that equals 140m per min
divide by 60 = 2.33m per sec

Now if you run your tank flat out for 10 seconds it should cover,

2.33 x 10 = 23.3meters

if it goes further, its fast

if it does not go that far, its slow

hope that helps
