So I couldn't help but notice these speed tiers are a bit outdated in places (which is a shame as I love this project and think it's highly useful), so I took the liberty to create a slightly more relevant version. Should contain all VR mons with their relevant speed tiers, everything that's currently A- and up is bolded.

Main changes are the inclusion of a few relevant speedtiers that weren't previously there (like fast aggron, -spe celesteela, or scarf kartana), removal of some obsolete mons like xurkitree, and updated boldings. Ladder usage (1630 level, march 2021) was used as a source, so this list is more reflective of what gets usage than what is actually good (scarf naganadel comes to mind). Some things I wasn't quite sure about, so please offer feedback about what should/shouldn't be on this list.

yall should add 190 speed tiers for every single bulky mon that loses to trick disable gardevior without it bcuz like idk their clearly more important than "scarf max speed tsareena" and "fast blissey" that's just my opinion tho
The original post has a section at the bottom, labeled 'speed benchmarks', that already lists your proposed benchmark. Speed tiers typically don't include mons EVd to outspeed other mons, because that will just result in new sets creeping those benchmarks, and so on. Non-arbitrary benchmarks like 'no speed investment' and 'max speed investment' are safer to list, and in many cases still useful.

Scarf max speed is the tsareena set that got it ranked in the first place (check the VR spreadsheet comments), and speed is useful on one of the few blissey sets worth using over chansey (the current analysis is near-max speed).
