    So as far as Team Flash knows, Mach 2 is his limit but they are associating it with time travel in error due to the particle accelerator and the wormhole.

I didn't get any sense that the Accelerator or Wormhole etc had any part of The Flash's feat. Even if one were to accept the bizarre notion that the scientists of team-Flash think Barry's maximum speed is Concorde-like supersonic and that that that is enough to break the time-barrier(!) simple logic dictates something else must be happening here as Reverse-Flash was clearly superior in speed but unable to replicate the feat. There is something in The Flash's power that he doesn't seem conciously aware of, strangely neither do the scientists watching him seem to question it either....

My theory is that when Barry hits Mach 2, he can briefly accelerate to lightspeed in order to either enter the Speed Force or Time Travel. We do know that Reverse Flash was faster than Barry but never time warped without help from Barry. We also know that Zoom is also 3 to 4 times faster than Barry but also doesn't time warp. So, your absolutely right that something else must be going on in order for Barry to time warp as he does. And that is where my theory comes in.

The reason why I believe Barry briefly achieves lightspeed in order to time warp or enter the speed force is simple: In order to beat Zoom or Reverse Flash, Barry would need to be faster than them but if he time warps or enters the speed force every time he hits Mach 2, then he can never be faster than them. He will always be stuck at a top speed of Mach 2. That is why my theory makes perfect sense.

I'll give you an example.

The Delorean time machine in Back to the Future had to reach a speed of 88 mph then it can travel back in time. But notice that whenever the Delorean travels back in time, two fire trails are left behind, almost as if the tires spun so fast that the Delorean briefly accelerated to lightspeed to achieve time travel. This is never fully explained in the movie as far as I can remember, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me.

The same principle can be applied here to how Barry achieves Time Travel.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
