Wait, I'm talking about the 'theoretical math'- Testing is done as punkworks did with whatever modifications to the test as one sees fit. For example, a larger sample size of runners of similar speed and build to account for different joint positions while crossing the lane. Or, the same individuals but running the same BPS lane from different starting distances (so that they're joints are more likely to be in a different position from attempt to attempt).
