    Here's a link discussing the impossibility of what "was" the world record of 1:04.25. It was later corrected to 1:05.25. This was clearly a corrected typo since 1:04.25 is not possible. Jon Ewing offers a bounty to anyone who can score under 1:05.00. My run is not perfect, but it's close enough to show a sub 1:05 might be possible. The thread also mentions a bounty for a sub 27.80 for game 3BB. I've ran several perfect runs on that track and have concluded that 27.94 is the best time.

    Here's a screenshot.

    I do remember that old thread. Unfortunately Doug and Jon have been long gone from TG for some time now. Hope they both re-surface one day.

    Ahhhh, the old typo controversies continue. At very least, this one typo has been corrected, and then you proceed to blow it away! Fantastic run!
