The 28 mph, 130 ft radius case is the case in the paper
that gives a 38/62% torque split.  Given the low speed and
large radius, it isn't particularly interesting.

It's the admission that a smaller radius can force max
torque split that was interesting.  Unfortunately, the paper is
somewhat lacking in numbers as to how the speed/radius variables
affect this - it just says max torque split is reached at 15m radius.
