The CAFE foundation tested a 6a about 15 years ago and determined a best glide of right at 100 mph.
That is what I use.

On my RV-6, Best Glide and Best Rate of climb are the same. 78 KIAS is what works best in my RV-6.

Given the wild variation in RV configurations, I.e. engine / prop combinations, EW / MGW, etc. and the fact the CFI giving the BFR has no clue because there is no "official" published information, the best glide speed is whatever you tell your CFI. Have fun with the BFR.

I did a fair amount of glide testing on my 6 (engine idling, full fuel-1289lbs).  After a good deal of data analysis and curve fitting, my data indicated the speed for minimum descent rate is 67 knots and for maximum range is 89 knots.  In order to keep things simple, I use a figure of merit of 85 knots.
