I'm tryin to figger out "instant flat" from a broken valve stem, its still quite a restrictive hole that takes time for the air to flow thru

I had a rear caliper fall off once, centrifical force put it thru my wheel, 6" gash, 65mph± mid corner leaned pretty good, when I rolled to a stop a few hundred feet down the road, I could still hear air hissin out of the gash, at a buck25, seems like it would take a half mile to more for the air to escape thru such a small hole
