Ok - not 30 to 40 frames as you say Vega, but .3 to .4 of a second is possible (though very very difficult).
I reverted to an easier, more consistent start method - just to practice the turnaround, and this popped out within about 5 runs! This start really does set you up better for the turnaround, but I gave up about .3 of a sec to Champ at one point.
The drive all the way back is pretty difficult to get, but much, much quicker, no?
1,312 less players than on Riding School (btw), So, yea - a summery breezy walk in the park..
Cue The Isley Brothers.. (some people think it was Jimi H who played the guitar lead lines on that song, but he had left the band by then - with a year or two of anonymity still ahead of him, before he arrived in a properly appreciative London, under the managership of Chas Chandler - ex bass player of The Animals, and himself pretty much broke at that point).
It was Ernie Isley who played those guitar lines - being totally in the thrall of Jimi (but without the - ahem - same level of creativity?).
If anyone is interested.
Just because I heard the song today for the first time in years
