Weird minor scoreboard enduro error

Probably not worth reporting, especailly on the principle of "if it aint broke dont fix it" i'd fear fixing a pointless error could make issues hence just a wall post for those curious

i noticed we track kilometers not miles for enduro. Struck me as odd since enduro was made by an american company. I decided to look it up, nope it miles. Extra odd since tg refs created it as kilometers since well, to my knowledge most tg refs and the atari ones in particular were also american so i'm really not complaining just finding it very curious and i like a good mystery. anyway

    Good eye! I wondered at one point why this was tracked in km here and literally every other scoreboard Ive seen. My conclusion was that others probably knew something that I didnt LOL! Looks like I was wrong about being wrong. Great find, Bill!

    I didnt realize other scoreboards also did that, i would imagine they just copied Twin Galaxies. Again, for americans its an odd mistake to make, especially hard to believe alot of different americans would all make the exact same mistake.

    you know how it is, when two students get the same right answer, maybe they cheated maybe they both studied hard. when two students both get the same wrong answer though, well then, you've figured out theres some homework copying going on

    All scores need to be disputed as the miles were not properly converted to kilometers! The rules are always right and it was the submitter's responsibility to do the correct calculation! DISPUTES!!!!

    You’re right! I get to a higher score than displayed due to conversion
