    [Unofficial] 3x3 SpeedBLD Single: 8.483

    Skip to 1:40 for the solve. This solve took me about 1 hour and 20 minutes to memorize, with a 4 hour break somewhere in the middle. No worries, I didn't practice this before because I forced myself to not turn the cube and I have no other 3x3. :P This was my first try (other than me...

    Will my average go down soon?

    I've been stuck at around a 23 sec average for the past couple weeks, but in the past few days I've been getting a few 16s daily and occasionally a 14 (only 2). All the other times are around 23. What does this mean, and does it mean my average will go down soon?

    [Unofficial] 10.69 SpeedBLD FAIL (Petrus method)

    I miscounted the number of d moves and y rotations, so I got the PLL AUF wrong because I'm retarded. :tu I thought I'd post it here so you all can laugh at my misfortune. :mad:

    [Unofficial] 3x3 8.22 DNF (Last Move Explosion/Pop)

    So in this solve, I was 2 moves away from my first under 7, but looks like my cube decided otherwise It was a dumb scramble though, so I probably wouldn't have counted this to my PB Watch the video here: I am a little disappointed in Dayan, but also in myself. I decided to use the...

    Cube suggestions?

    I am kinda new to speed cubing (well I've learnt quite a bit and am pretty close to under a minute).. and was in a doubt whether to buy the Dayan Zhan chi stickered or sticker less. Also I wanted to know if the plastic quality(black or white) would make a difference or not. I prefer a sturdy...

    New Method?

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of creating a new method for a 3x3 solve. It has 4 basic steps: Double cross (cross on white/yellow or any two opposite sides for colour-neutral solvers) Corner layer set (putting the corners on their correct layers) Corner orientation and permutation...

    Ok, hear me out. I have a Shengshou Aurora, Fangshi mini, Aolong V2, and Guanlong. After cleaning them, sanding down flashing and using lubix on the core the Aurora was the slowest cube of them all. I recently got a bottle of Maru lube and tried it on each cube. After using it my Aurora is...

    Practise schedule?

    So I have been using F2L for a while but my recognition is poor, I have a decent time of 42.53 but I want to get faster. I have been using the beginners method for the last layer but I want to learn 2-Look OLL and PLL, I was just wondering, should I focus on my F2L first? or learn 2-Look OLL and...
