    Default Does your Zhanchi pop?

    Yeah, does your's pop (and explode)? With or without torpedos? I have one with torpedos, pops and explodes a whole lot, tightened it, locks up more, cant cut, pieces catch and pops out. loosen it, explodes.
    Hi, my name is Hiwhatismyname, so what is it?

    Both of my Zhanchi cubes have never popped. Maybe you should do the edge mod for it?

    Lube it then tighten it. I had like the same problem. I used traxxas but I'm sure maru lune or lubix would be amazing too.

    tighten it and take out your torpedos, they make it catch and reduces the corner cutting.

    btw i highly recommend lubix, it will make your cube much faster as long as you dont put on too much.

    Sorry to tell you, but you HAVE to lube Dayans. They are complete garbage without lube. And, don't use spray. Use nice lube, like Lubix. You just HAVE to. You won't do any better with a GU Hong v2. They are HORRIBLE without lube.
    Yes that's correct. I'm the only cuber in the world to ever have their luggage searched in customs and be caught with an inappropriate women's toy.

    Only problem I have is when I'm scrambling it without using a predefined scramble (when I'm just messing with it too harshly) a corner will sometimes rotate, so I end up with my whole cube solved but a corner. But I do not have pops when I'm solving my cube.

    Mine pops, but only because I deliberately have it very loose. And even then it's rare.

    I shortened the springs on mine. That way, it feels loose due to less friction but is actually tighter.
    ZH becomes clicky when loose or when the springs are shortened, which I like.

    I clipped 1.5 turns off using a Dremel's grinding bit. I put a little 30k Diff oil on the spring before reassembling. Other people have just swapped the springs with something else and gotten good results.


    As far as popping, I get pops when it's too loose.
