I blew myself away with a sub-25 Ao10 for 3x3, colour-neutral only (no white or yellow crosses). I thought I was still averaging 30 seconds, and I sat down and did a very casual 24.55 Ao10. I've decided that I'm going to be fully colour-neutral from now on. I'll have to sacrifice breaking the sub-20 barrier sooner, but I think it'll be worth it.

That's awesome!
Some people say switching to colour neutrality isn't worth it, but if you're having this much fun with it then it must be :p
I did a switch from white to CN when I was about the same speed as you. Good luck!

4 STM 2x2x3 im drooling

Edit: I speedsolved it.

M2 U' M U2 M' U' M2 U2

= 28 STM

I'm a CFOP solver so it was instinctive for me to shove the cross edge in first... came up with good results actually.
12 move F2L + commutator + conjugated commutator
it's almost like im doing FMC.

In fact it's even better than that 35 HTM FMC solve I tried to do, this one is 33 HTM.

Ooh...I think you've got the potential for a WR single.

Whoa, awesome!

while we're on the topic of clock, 6.89 PB stackmatted ao50 and 6.52 near miss ao12...
got to ~80 solves and then my accuracy wavered too much and i got too many DNF's to get a decent ao100 :(

First sub-4 6x6 single. 3:58.17, with double parity. :)

Apparently all that 6x6 practice helped my 5x5 out, just got 1:58.67, my first sub-2!
