My guess is that this is a combined score. The best I have seen for a single flight this year is 12+ at 60psi. There is usually one outlier at nationals, so 14 might be possible. But I predict no one will be close to 18.

Agreed, that the highest scores seen so far are 12+ at 60 psi. But, I beg to differ in terms of that outlier number. I think that number could be well into the range of 16-17. Maybe it's just me being paranoid, but I've been consistently getting 13.7-13.9 seconds on 60 psi, and I don't feel like an outlier lol. I don't even know if it's enough to medal.
