In preparation for Small Cheese 2019 I have done a couple of 4x4 With Feet solves, and want an incentive to do more. I’m also curious to see what competition might be like. I don’t know how long this will last, but for now here are a few scrambles:

What sort of times are you getting?
I can't imagine doing OLL parity with feet, let alone a full solve...!!
I’m hoping to find out what a few more people are getting with this thread. I’ve done 3 solves myself, I’ll do more later today. My best time is 7:35. I average about 1:30-1:40 on Feet and about 1:25 on 4x4. The WR single is 2:19.18, which I don’t think I can beat but which I think is entirely beatable.

1. 8:59 (the cat restarted the timer. Honest. 27 seconds plus 8:22 plus 15 seconds of inspection had counted down to 6)
2. (5:24.81)
3. 8:36.01 messed up an A-perm
4. (12:17.29) DNF has anybody tried to reassemble a 4x4 with their feet? Even just putting in a wing is really hard.
5. 7:01.56

Ao5: 7:59.56

Lots of room for improvement.

What about 4x4 1-foot blind solving ... ; - )
When I originally proposed 4x4 With Feet as a side event for the competition I’m organizing at the end of the month I intended it as a bit of a joke. After doing a few solves I’ve found that I enjoy it more than I thought I would, and I really think it would be a good candidate for a new WCA event. Obviously 3x3 With Feet would come first, but they’re both surprisingly good events and definitely not ridiculous.
