514.09 secondsGrzegorz Prusak2 twists to cube, 2 moves (1 twist) CO, 4 twists EO, 5 twists CP, 4 twists EP. My nonLC solve definition: minimum 2 twists to cube, any Corners Orientation (bringing corners to correct layer), any Edges Orientation, any Corners Permutation, any Edges Permutation. Is it correct?20070306

815.20 secondsLars VandenberghThis was a simple, quick, uncomplicated and relatively easy one.20070603
915.82 secondsAndrea Santambrogiofast solve for me20090510
1016.24 secondsAndrew NelsonSome might consider it lucky, as I skipped 2 steps, but I worked for every skip. 3-twist cube shape. I planned out my corner orientation to solve edge orientation as well. then I did my corner permutation from an awkward angle to solve edge permutation as well. This comes the day after a VERY lucky 7.40 solve (randomly generated scramble ended up having a 6-twist solution) I'm getting better.20080320
1116.28 secondsMilan BaticzNon-lucky solve. Still use only 3 algs for EP.

1317.48 secondsUriel Gayosso RuizThis was extremely fast for me. I just had an easy scramble from the CCT :D, every step was done with only one algorithm :D.
Scramble: (0,2) / (0,4) / (6,3) / (6,4) / (6,5) / (0,1) / (5,3) / (6,3) / (0,3) / (6,0) / (6,1) / (0,2) / (6,0) / (0,3) / (4,0) / (2,0) / (0,3) /
Try it out. It rocks!! I hope i can get the continental record :D, or at least the national record.
The Mexican Competition is getting closser each time!!

1417.72 secondsMichael FungTimed with "The ultimate Rubik's cube® timer version 2.1". No parity error. The scramble: 0,2/1,1/6,5/-3,0/0,4/5,0/0,2/4,3/0,2/4,3/-3,0/0,3/6,2/-4,0/0,4/6,0/0,4/-3,0.20060506
1518.41 secondsJason Baum I got the scramble from Stefan's blindfolded solve: -2,0/0,-4/0,3/0,1/6,2/6,0/6,3/-3,1/5,5/6,1/-1,2/0,4/6,2/0,1/0,5/0,3/3,0
Cube shape: /6,-3/
Bottom corners: 1,0/3,6/
Bottom edges: -3,-3/0,-3/-1,-4/1,1/0,3/0,3/2,6
PLL: 6,0/-3,0/-2,0/0,3/2,0/3,0/-2,0/0,-3/-4,0
I guess the bottom edges were slightly lucky since I usually do them in two steps (first two edges, final two edges). But doing the first two edges only takes 2-4 twists, so I didn't skip that much. Check out my method here.

3939.15 secondsDoug LiMight have been a little lucky, I forget. I certainly have had times under this that I know are lucky. I have gotten many times under 65s with parity so this time is not unreasonable to select as my PB.20070209

5259.11 secondsAlan TanI haven't really been active in cubing for a while since I got into guitar. but Square-1 has been a major focus for me. I'm getting better though after using a simplified version of Jason Baum's method w/ a PLL variation by Stefan Pochmann.20080811
531 minuteZebadiah W. ZiegenbeinThis was a very fast solve. i had my dad mix it and i started ot solve it and then after a few twist to get the top white and bottom green it was solved!! My normal times a little less than 5 minutes i was very proud of this solve.20060214

I understand it's possible to fix parity when in star shape (at start, before cube shape) using just one move. but. how do you now wich case it is??? (I don't know).

783 minutes 36 secondsCollin PerschonUsing my own method, with no help at all. First time timing myself. My time would be nearly halved if I find a way to switch only two edges easily. The way I figured out is what I call a controlled mess up. I mess it up in a way after I run in to the problem so when I solve it again I won't run into it. This is obviously not very efficient.
793 minutes 37.25 secondsThomas ClementStill no idea on the cube formation. This one had parity, grrr!20060529
