Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology
Vol. 15, Number 4, 27th Decemeber, 1995
"Body mass, bone 'strength indicator,' and cursorial potential of
James O.Farlow, Matt B. Smith, and John M. Robinson
The paper basically gives a new mass estimate of 5,400-6,300 kg for

speed estimate of about 10-15 meters/second (I think about 20-30 mph.
My math sucks).
