i just turned mine in at -14. i know i could have gotten to atleast -16, maybe lower, but i'm sick of these levels
On displacement i had -9, and i'm pretty sure you can get -10 but no lower. i just needed to shave off a few ticks, but i was to lazy, and i just have a feeling its going to cost me an ipod. i had champ, water only, and hands off. i used 2 water rods
On stuck i had -4. I want to say nobody is going to go lower than that, but there are so many possibilities, i cant be sure. i used 5 wood rods and got champ. i have no regrets on this level, i know i cant tweak it any lower
On be a champ i got -2. I used 6 water rods. i pretty much feel the same about this level, going any lower doesnt seem possible, but someone may come up with a creative way to do it either with less rods or get hands off
On gateway i got -9. i did it rodless with 8 blue wheels. I acutally never came up with a solution using rods. someone may get -11 by taking out a ball, but i'm doubting it. they would have had to use a completly different approach on lining up most of the balls than me.
And then there is canyon. i got +10. i know for sure that i could have got to at least 9 by lowering it to 366 ticks, but it is such a frustrating level, in that it is really 2 levels in one. tweaking the top part any messes with the bottom part. I ended up using 3 rods on the top part, i have done it with 2 rods but it was way to slow (but i do think it could have been tweaked to be as fast as my 3 rod design). i used 5 rods on the bottom, i dont think you can use less than that but i bet i could have lost a point by making it faster.
well thats my opinion. i'm just about 100 percent sure somebody will get -16, and if i put a few more hours into it i would have gotten it. but my estimate is the best score will be -19. and i will place from 11-20 and enjoying my zune
