    Default need some help with the dayan mf8 4X4

    Hi guys, just got my dayan mf8 4X4 from speedcubing store and I have some questions (I tried to search them before):

    How should I apply the lubix on this cube? what is the best way to lubricate it?
    what else do I need to do in order to make my cube better? (I heard about something that called "Break in", what does that mean?)

    Sorry if those questions were asked before, I couldn't find them in the search.

    It should be pretty tight out of the box. I don't like taking apart my puzzles so I just applied my lube by spraying in the holes that are created between the pieces. You just have to play around with it a lot for it to become nice.
    The wiki! read the FAQ and forum rules. Very useful resources. Post your efforts. Solve blindfolded. Introduce yourself! BB code - Compete! - Ask a question!

    Take it ALL the way apart. Until you get to that pseudo 3x3 in the center. Then move one of those and fit lube in. Then loosen the 3 screws of the pseudo 3x3 just a little (45-180 degrees). Work around the lube a little bit in the pseudo 3x3. Put lube on the ball core itself. Then full reassemble it. And fit lube where it’s needed and work it in. Solve it a lot and break it in (This is working the plastic and making it faster, smoother, etc.) Then enjoy your Dayan mf8 4x4. I recommend putting lubix in the very internals to get the best speed, but once should be enough. I hate taking apart and reassembling puzzles although 4x4's aren't that bad. I guess it depends how anal you are about how well lubricated your puzzle is.

    Edit: My 100th post! Yay!

    Lubix in the core and maru everywhere else seemed to work well for me.
