I see both with similar possibilities. But since they are not that close yet, someone else getting it first also seems quite plausible.

I did it because your right.
Fair enough, although in all honesty I pretty much pulled that prediction out of my ear. My reasoning is simply that Feliks is really good and has a history of breaking new WRs, but Kevin is also really good and I like Kevin and want him to do well (nothing against Feliks, I've never actually met either of them).

At home. Where you should be.

Neither have I, but I will soon at the WC!
Next thing you know, someone's gonna make this for all other 16 events.
Your probably right.

How they are not close? They could even get 1:25 mean anytime
I didn't say it could not happen anytime. I see nothing to suggest that it will be imminent nor anything to suggest otherwise. They always get much fewer chances to establish an average on big cubes, so whether it comes soon or not has too much to do with luck.

Voted Kevin as he focuses a lot more on 6x6 than Feliks. Heck, he got triple parity on the last solve of his 6x6 WR avg, the 1:29.19. He just needs to get lucky with parity for once, and he is very much capable of doing it any time now.
