Post elma scientific studies here.

I did a quick scientific test to estimate the approximate boost from spinning + brake versus gas

I did 5 tests:
(1) While falling straight down, 1 right volt in air + brake & right volt when touching ground
(2) 1 alovolt in air, right volt+brake on ground
(3) 2 alovolt in air, right volt+brake on ground
(4) 3 alovolt in air, right volt+brake on ground
(5) Amount of time to accelerate to a given speed in saveload

I tried (1)-(4) until I got 30 good attempts each and recorded my fastest horizontal speed. I then compared to the amount of time needed to gas to reach the same horizontal speed. Since it takes 0.20-0.30 seconds pressing brake to get boost from spin, I then removed 0.30 seconds from final result to estimate the "impact" of spinning onto flat ground

Will put link to recsource example tomorrow

Result:
In optimal conditions, with no horizontal speed and on flat ground, you gain the following speed when doing spins:
2 right volt=Save 0.71 seconds of gas time
alo+right=Save 1.00 seconds of gas time
alo+alo+right=Save 1.50 seconds of gas time
alo x3+right=Save 1.92 seconds of gas time
Gas: 14.643 speed/second, until bike speed is 220.00 at which point acceleration is 0 speed/second.
