The Great Track & Field Experiment
The fact is, after all the years of trying off and on, I still (usually) produce a better score with one hand than two. I just can't get the rhythm down. Clearly, I could never be a drummer. Yeah, I've seen all the stuff online about guys using 3 and 4 finger methods to Lord-out at the game and yeah, I'm jealous like a mother-fucker.
So I was wondering, how many guys out there (not just the freaks on youtube) can slay at T & F? So, how about this, if you have access to the game (either dedicated or in MAME), crank the game up on default settings and run the 100 (the first event) 3 times. Report your best score on the survey in the right column of the blog. It's obviously anonymous (so no embarrassment) and a much better survey if guys of all skill levels do it, not just the uber-players. I'll play my three soon and post the results, good luck.
UPDATE: Ran my three 100 Meter dashes and got 10.14, 10.49 and 10.54. I did them with one hand. When I tried after that with 2 hands, I got my speed faster by the end, but I can't do well consistently, so my times were essentially the same.
