Jim said RAIP (Roll Out as Initial Position) only use 30 rolls (all rolls
except the doubles).

Well, not exactly, he wrote earlier:

"it always works on sets of 36 and simply discards (in effect re-rolls) doubles if it's the first roll of a game."

And that's exactly what makes me doubt that f.i. 30*36 trials would produce a perfect two roll rotation.

Quasi-Random and RAIP are not related.

I'm not sure what you exactly mean by this, but my question is really: shouldn't these be related to produce the same perfect rotation for 30*36 trials with the opening roll, as for 36*36 trials without it? Just discarding rolls as you go won't give an optimal result, I'd think.
