Personally, my diagnostic was 164 with -8 on LG, and I regularly finish LR and RC in under 30 minutes while going -0 or -1, even though I haven't really studied those sections. OP claims to do somewhat better than that, but he seems very privileged and has conceivably been trained to take standardized tests his entire life (he speaks of "consistently" getting certain SAT scores, so we know he studied for that). So, he could be telling the truth. Doesn't make him any less annoying or socially tone-deaf, but he isn't necessarily a liar.
Not saying it's not possible to score a high diagnostic, for example a girl on here last year scored something like a 174 on hers and hit a 180 on the real thing, although they claimed to have been struggling with time. -25 minutes is blazing though. I've just seen a ton of bullshit on here that makes me think otherwise.
