I doubt even a top scorer getting 170+ timed will score 180 consistently untimed, since there's always ~2 questions in the newer RC with correct ACs that are ridiculously subtle, and sometimes there's an odd question in LR. I can see them going -0 in LG and usually LR though.
As you become more familiar with the test timing becomes much less of an obstacle. I believe that top scorers who get questions wrong timed would to a large degree have gotten those same questions wrong untimed. The gap between untimed and timed scores dramatically narrows as you practice.
Maybe you're right (and I'm actually really glad to hear timing becomes less of an issue), but then again, you can usually miss 1-3 questions and still make a 180.
With enough time, I'd be surprised if consistent 170+ test takers would get more than 2 questions wrong. LG would be an auto -0, and RC would be much easier as well, because you could continue to go back to the text for answers. I could still see a minus 1 or 2 because of a tricky question or two. Then, maybe 1 LR questions that you get stuck on. That makes for a score of between -0 and -3.
