Some different solving - R and U turns only!

So, I know that Avgalen had a thread similar, but his didn't allow R and U turns in both directions, and I've played around with this idea for a while but this morning I spent a few hours doing solves like this and I've really really been enjoying myself.

So I was thinking maybe we could get into it, maybe have little comps and such? My avg seems to be just over 11 seconds (granted, I'm not all that fast at proper speedcubing, I avg 22.1 seconds). I did this with hand scrambles though.

I actually had a REALLY lucky scramble this morning, and solved it in 3.13 (which is slow considering how easy that scramble is). The cube ended up looking like this: U R U R2 UR. I obviously did more scrambling than that, but this is how it looked when it was done. And when I solved it, I had a full LL skip. Hahaha.

Anyway, what do you guys think? Here are some scrambles:

R U R2 U R' U2 R2 U' R U R U R2 U2
U R U R U2 R' U2 R U' R2 U' R' U R2
R2 U2 R U' R2 U' R U2 R' U2 R U' R'

What do you think?

Aah! That's fantastic!!! NIce scrambler!

Here are some scrambles, post your times:

1. U' R2 U2 R U' R' U R U R' U2 R U' R2 U2 R' U2 R2 U2 R U' R' U' R' U'
2. U' R U R' U R' U' R U2 R' U' R' U' R' U2 R U' R2 U2 R U2 R' U R' U
3. R U' R2 U R U2 R U' R U2 R U2 R U' R U' R2 U2 R' U' R' U2 R2 U R
4. U2 R' U R U R' U' R U R2 U2 R' U2 R' U R U R2 U' R' U R' U2 R' U
5. R' U R2 U2 R U R2 U' R' U2 R2 U' R' U' R2 U R2 U2 R' U' R U' R2 U' R2

Escher, did you learn/make new OLLs for some of the cases to achieve such speeds? Also, did this improve your F2L at all? I have a theory that lots of this could improve your FTL, but it's still a theory :p

Edit: Here are my times:

12.55
10.41
(16.22)
8.31
(8.30)

10.42 avg

Hehe, that's funny, but I've never practised it.

10.42, (10.60), 9.84, 6.44, (6.20) = 8.90

I don't know how to solve one of the corner OLLs with RU. It kept coming up and I had to try and randomly break it down.

Is this alg right?

chameleon/headlights
R U R' U R U R' U2 R U R' U2 R U R'

I always thought those were 2 different cases.

And I was trying to figure out what this alg was...

superman
R U' R' U2 R R' U2 R U' R' U' R U' R'

Isn't that just an anti-sune with the cancellations? But you already have anti-sune listed.

Solving 2 gen is hardly a new idea... Some people average 5~
I didn't say it was new.

None of those algs work for me. (and, Headlights and chameleon ARE two different cases :) )

"Some different solving" and "So I was thinking maybe we could get into it" both strongly imply "new", or "original".
Yes, for ME. These things are new for ME, but I know they aren't new for everyone else. There isn't an active thread like this, and I figured it would be cool to have one :)

I like to do an F first, then scramble 2-gen. So you have to solve it with R U until the cube will be solved when you do an F' at the end.
