Just finished the mod. Used a nail fail. Took me about 2 hours. Actually not that hard. And the cube doesnt lock up at all, unless my turning is off . Great mod.
2 hours is pretty fast
I'm going to try this mod.
3x3 single: 7.30, avg5: 10.48, avg12: 11.67, avg100: 12.74, avg1000: 13.43
3x3 OH single: 9.97, avg5: 14.72, avg12: 16.76, avg100: 19.04, avg1000: 19.72
IMO the mod only works when you do it good. I first sanded down a bit for the result. The result was: Just little clicky, less locky. Then I sanded down a lot and I saw some really good improvement!
Life is hard, make it more easy with cubing!
Should be able to upload the tutorial at around 8 or 9 tomorrow (Australien time)

Sorry for bumping a 3-month old thread, but I've been searching the forums for an answer.
I did a similar modification on my shengshou 6x6, but after doing so the outer edges started to pop more often.
I tried tightening the core, but an quarter turn more just made it really stiff and hard to turn (I even had dayan springs in it)
I ended up tightening it an eighth turn for each screw. The edges did pop less, but it's kinda slow now.
I'm wondering if doing a similar mod on the shengshou 5x5 would make the edges more prone to popping. So far I've done everything in Florian's video on my 5x5 except for the edges (I left the longest mod for last :P)
So far my 5x5 holds up pretty well to my abuse in the 100 or so solves I did with it since I reassembled it, with only a couple center corner twists and very few lockups. So, if I do the mod on the edges, will the popping rate go up?
