    @Achifaifa : Stefan Pochmann has a great guide to 4x4 centres, and Chris Hardwick has a great guide to pairing edges.
    I found them useful, anyways

    I'm trying to learn but my memory is horrible. I'll bear that in mind tho, thank you

    Hi, I have a question.
    I wanna post a video to Bapao's cube giveaway, but when I try to select it in to attach, the video is grayed out.(NOTE: I do not have afacebook or youtube, because I am 10 years old, and I am using a video that I made using a mac camera)
    Any suggestions on how I can post the Vid?

    Default zhanchi tension problem.

    i tried to tension my zhanchi last week. it went pretty bad, i did watch a tutorial for guhong tension and used same method for zhanchi. i didnt get the perfect tension to every side, i went side by side little by little and still some sides are very smooth and others very laggy and heavy. i tried to loose those sides but it didnt really work and if it did it would pop. i use torpedos on this. could anyone give me a quick guide or something to tension it perfect. thanks!!

    Take apart your cube completely minus the centres and tighten every one down until they turn the same (not at all, basically, but with the same stiffness) Then, make a mark on every screw with a permanent marker, this is so you can keep track of your turns.

    Then unscrew every side 3 360 degree turns, using your marker mark as a guide. Then reassemble your cube. If you can't, undo more, just make sure every side has an equal amount.

    When your cube is fully assembled then adjust every side the same amount until your happy. It might take a while and the difference is often less than half a turn.

    Good luck
    My team sucks.

    Where can I get custom Rubik's Cube Logos for multiple puzzles at a cheap price (not Oliver's store) that I can place my own logo on it?

    All you need is java installed. It runs via command line.

    Tensioning takes a lot of time and study to get it right. I recommend you disassemble the whole cube, because you might have threaded the screw wrong, or done something wrong. Go slowly and inspect each piece for flaws. The tension of the springs also have a big effect on the cube. A tight spring will stiffer and hard. A normal spring would be easy to push so its fast and loose. But, I doubt that a Zhanchi comes with 2 sets of springs. Just check it again and try lubing it to see if it goes away.
