    Same rules apply as the other race threads. There will be a few different speed categories, when you post your average, post what one you want to join, sub 15, sub 20, sub 30, sub 45.

    1. If you get 3 averages under your group's speed, you automatically graduate to the next one, and if you graduate the sub 15 idk your too fast.
    2. Only post times for the current round.
    3. As long as I'm not too busy everything should be updated each Sunday.

    Scrambles, Graduates, and Results will be in the first couple of posts, so if your looking for something you can go there.

    At least this one is a one thread race. May become handy =]

    I'll receive my first SQ1 in a few days, so I'll be joining as soon as I learn to solve it.

    I would try, but I still use Thrawst's method. I average 1:30, plus I'm trying to improve on other cubes right now.

    there isnt anything wrong with the method, you may not get really fast but i can get sub 40 pretty easily with it.

    for edge orientation, you can use (1,0)/(3,0)/(3,0)/(-1,-1)/(-2,1)/(-3,0)/ (this orients the UL and DB edges), just do this a bunch of times

    srs thrawst's method is neither beginner friendly nor good >_>

    Uhhhhh there is A LOT wrong with thrawst's method. If you are trying to minimize number of algs then use Screw, it's sub20able with 5 algs.
