    Mefferts is apparently the best megaminx, but it's quite expensive. If you want a cheaper alternative, then the MF8 is the better choice.

    Mf8 for Square-1. I have the one with the ball core, but I'm not sure what version that is. From what I've heard, though, both versions are pretty good.

    Yes
    Yes
    Probably
    Probably
    It'll be faster but it might melt some pieces together (e.g., torpedoes)
    I don't think it'll help much.

    For 2x2 sune and antisune cases I recognize the permutation by looking at four colors which is slow. Which three should I look at and how should I learn it?

    You only need to look at 2 pieces. If you put the one correctly oriented corner in the bottom left position (or the corner and 2 edge block for 3x3) and look at the corner to the right of it you can tell which you have. If the top colour part is pointing towards you, you have sune, if it is on the right, it is anti-sune.

    You can also look at any 2 unoriented corners, if they seem to be going in an anti-clockwise direction (to the right) it is anti-sune. If they are going in a clockwise direction (to the left) it is sune.

    ELL because OLL/PLL is lame and CLL/ELL is cool.

    Is that a pillowed or non-pillowed 7*7?

    Edit: My question would be..
    What are typical solve times for the standard Rubik's cube and its variants, in seconds? (for speedsolvers) I'm hoping to see if I can make a nice function out of it.

    I'm quite sure you could, however, I'm not sure the cube would be very light on the eyes. They probably don't fit very well.

    Is this a good F-Perm in which I am trying to use T-Perm? (note, I know there are 14 turn ones, but this is for a slightly different method I'm trying)

    y M2 D' S2 (T-Perm) S2 D M2

    This will probably give at least some idea: http://worldcubeassociation.org/res...onId=&years=&show=All+Persons&average=Average
    (may take a bit to load if you have slow internet/comp)

    about halfway down the list the times are a bit over 30 seconds

    Maybe if you can fingertrick it, seems pretty awkward to me. I personally love the F perm I use (bar on left):
    R' U' F' (R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R') U R
    (the part in brackets is the T perm minus the last F' move)
