Well it depends on if he's drifting the rear out, and if he's got less than 15psi in the front. What kind of oil is the coach using? Is he ATGATT? All of these things have an impact on his ability to navigate the turn.

Preferably one without circular corners.

Oh yes, that is quite simple. I just googled it. How is that not a "w"? Omega my ass.

The key is to convert "rpm" back to radians.

I disagree. The key is to pin the throttle to prevent highsiding. If the coach highsides it'll be bad

Convert to radians? That's as bad as a "circular corner".

I just used Pi X D to get the circumference which is 100.sumthin feet. At 26 rpm 2600 and small change in feet was about 30 mph. (One mpm is 60 mph).

And I was a Psych Major, not a math whiz. However, comma, I grew up using slide rules before calculators were dreamed of by the general public. . Luckily I did not have to go get a slide rule out of the desk. This computer has a calculator.
