    I'm very new to the forums and this is my first post! I am not only new to the forums but also speed cubing. I have known how to solve a cube for a while now but have recently started speed cubing. I have a question and I think I've come to the right thread. Now for my question, what is the difference in 2cc 4cc and 8cc in the lubix brand lube? This is what I'm talking about - http://shop.speedsolving.com/product...zle-lubricant/

    The only difference is size. 2cc is small, 4cc is medium and 8cc is big

    How does one go about lubing a Square-1 (ball core), Pyraminx, and cubes 2-5 with CRC?
    3x3: 9.05/12.54/12.99/14.63. 4x4: 44.23/53.50/55.32/59:45. 3BLD: 1:21.72[35.53].

    Default Help! I lubed my V-Cube 5 and it got slower!

    Hello everyone, I modded my V-Cube 5 today and it worked great! Then, I decided to lube it with Liquid Wrench Silicone Spray (plastic safe, no acetone) and immediately my cube slowed way down I dissembled my cube and wiped all of the lube off and it's better but it is still slow. I need help! I think it has something to do with the internal mechanism...any suggestions? Also, what is the best kind of lube for V-cube 5 and any other bigger cubes?

    I need the help as soon as possible, because if there is nothing I can do then I will order a Shengshou 5x5 to replace it

    I just spray 2 short squirts inside, no more than 1 sec per squirt then immediately break it in so it doesn't act like glue and/or eat plastic.

    Generally with aerosol lubricant, the cube turns poorly for a while, and just requires breaking in (and a lot of it for bigger cubes) Just solve it and give it time. If the problem persists, make sure the pieces fit well, you may have to sand them and/or loosen the cube a bit. If all else fails, try replacing the whole core (screws and springs too). I wouldn't try any of the latter options until you are sure it wont get better by breaking it in more.

    Also, in the future, lube your big cubes with differential oil or shock oil (traxxas, ofna, lubix, maru, etc). Don't replace te cube unless you were planning to before your cube started turning badly.

    Thank you so much, I will do my best to break it in. I plan on purchasing lubix soon for use in the future, and if worse comes to worse I will order a new core for the cube. Thanks again!
