Hello, and welcome to the Race to Sub x on Skewb thread. This will be a weekly competition, where I post 12 scrambles (in fixed corner notation, or FCN) every Friday. At the end of each week, I will post the 3 fastest averages and 12 new scrambles. I will also post the results of anyone who graduated(achieved sub x 3 weeks in a row). Once you graduate, you can choose a new goal. Please use this format when posting your results:

I hope you all enjoy, and I will keep this thread going unless nobody posts for 3 weeks.

Not bad. Haven't practiced skewb for a while so I'm starting with sub-10. That 5.xx single was awesome!

I've been wanting to get faster at skewb so maybe this race will motivate me to practice this event! I will do it every week if you keep posting rounds and results.

Wow that was awful. Best solve was worse than what I used to average.

When you calculate an average of 12, you take out the best and worst times, add up the middle 10 times, and divide by 10. (In other words, you find the mean of the middle 10 times.) Your average was an 8.297, not 8.1.

Ton of lockups on the last solve. Just got first sub 6 Ao5 (that took some lolscrambles) and first sub 9 Ao100 so I better graduate soon.
