Beats the following submission: #1188: TheSwordUser's NES Rad Racer 2 in 19:50.12

The loss numbers should be explained. After the most optimal start I know how to do, if I remain at 255 MPH the entire time, then the loss is zero. For every frame I spend at less than 255 MPH, this increments my loss indicator by the difference. Theoretically, each 255 loss is equivalent to a frame of gameplay. I think it's essentially 30 Hz, so 7650 is one second.

A trick the old submission hasn't done is to move a bit before the power start. Until the "race start" sound actually finishes, you can't power up, so I take the time to creep forward slightly. It's worth something like 765 distance units (based purely on unreliable memory), or close to three frames of 255 MPH.
