[dinosaur] Running speed of Jurassic Park T. rex

Good day,

I have been reading an article about the famous "chase scene" in original Jurassic Park. The film sequence was slowed down so that CGI-made tyrannosaurus was not running at 45 - 50 kph (and so was able to keep up with the jeep) but rather something like 20 kph. CGI makers did a great job at reconstructing the mode of a giant theropods movement, anyway. I just wanted to ask, would it be possible to throw all the specifications of a T. rex gait into some similar software and find out how fast it probably could go? I know there were some attempts, but the results obtained vary too much. Thank you in advance, Tom
