The Illusion jump is just a gap which looks like it's further than it is, it's on the trainasium and its not anything to worry about.

As long as you can pass the time at adsc, and can show average upper body strength you will be fine, unless you're a complete mong on the command/team tasks, which i'm sure your not :wink:

As you asked, 8:36 is my best recorded time.
