Improved precision and a couple of obvious improvements bring down Tails' quest by 2 seconds, 50 frames.
This run uses the 2.1.1 version of Pu7o's Miles 'Tails' Prower in Sonic the Hedgehog hack.

Green Hill Zone (all acts) and Spring Yard Zone 1 have all been improved to the follwing times:
ActNew timeOld timeSavings
Green Hill Zone 10:15::310:16::3463
Green Hill Zone 20:14::540:15::1521
Green Hill Zone 30:28::150:28::2510
Spring Yard Zone 10:17::250:18::4176
Total improvement in in-game time: 170 frames, or 2 seconds and 50 frames.
The times given are the in-game timer values. The value after the final colon pair indicates the in-game frame counter, and is restricted to the 0-59 range. It is updated every frame (except during lag frames), and increments the in-game second when resetting to zero.

Stage by stage comments

Green Hill Zone 1

An obvious slope jump, using flight to avoid breaking the monitor, combine to a large speed boost. Improved precision until the end carry the day.

Green Hill Zone 2 & 3

More precise play in the beginning of the acts. That is it.

Spring Yard Zone 1

The most obvious improvement -- who needs speed shoes when you can abuse the enforced screen boundaries of flight to get nearly the same speed?

Other Comments

Possible improvements: If one were to accept damage in the run, Scrap Brain 2 might be improvable by 6 frames by getting hurt at the saw. There are no other improvements of which I am aware of at this time, and all my attempts at improving the other levels failed.

GabCM: Added YouTube module.

FractalFusion: Judging.
FractalFusion: Accepting as an improvement to the published run.
