    I think maybe a little bit but not as much as in ShengShou 6x6.
    I watched Florian's video about World Record Mod and he tried this and there's no big difference.

    You'll need the washers that are below the spring, but you can get rid of the ones on top is there are any.
    I live in Canada, I literally have to warm up before I cube :)

    ok cool, because I had a Lingyun v2 once and it had two washers per spring. When I took it out it played the same, so I was wondering if they even mattered. Now I understand.

    lol, i never said that. You have to try it for yourself, some people won't like it other people will like it. It makes the cube faster, but it won't be smooth and it will lock a bit more.

    single WR(Tim's made dec11) and avg + single NAR(Kevin's made mar2012)

    I'm curious, in what way do the springs in a cube make it faster?

    If they are tight/not easily compressible, they increase friction when the sides turn. If they are loose/easily squishable springs, they don't cause as much friction, so the cube becomes easier to turn

    but isn't that the same as just loosening or tightening a cube?

    No. If you have hard/long springs that cause friction and you loose it too much, you will get lots of popping. When you have shorter/softer springs you can keep the screw tighter but you still have loose spring and the cube turns fine.

    For these pieces, do you guys think it is a good idea to round off where they touch the center corners? Also, what about rounding of the inner edges where they meet the outer edges? It seems like a good mod to me, but I do not want to create pops.
