    Shapeways increased their prices a month or two ago.

    But I think Harry Savage sells some time machines in the back of his cheap dirt store.
     
  3. What is with the Harry Savage thing?

    well my sulongs got worse than ever and my aolong v2 doesn't seem as fast as it should be and it corner cuts just like line 2 line hardly. And btw this is a how to forum. so i think its the right place.

    You probably don't need to mod the cube. You need to tension it and lube it properly. Follow a guide like CrazyBadCuber's

    well i have lubed the sulong and i've heard aolongs became sluggish after lubing; that almost no lube works on them
     
  9. I have been hearing that it is bad to do a Konsta mod only on a Shengshou 4x4 because it actually makes it worse. However, I don't want to do the Florian mod as well. Can someone confirm or deny that only doing the Konsta mod makes your cube worse? I only want to fix pops, not corner cutting. Thanks.
     
  10. If you over mod it it will make it worse but in my experience I makes the cube a lot better plus many other people have had good experiences with the mods.
     
  11. I Konsts Modded my 4x4 Shengshou, lubed it, and tensioned it, but it still doesn't feel like it is any different. Anybody have any tips on how to make it better (or do i have to Florian mod it)?
     
  12. The lubing issue was actually only an issue with the older batch Aolongs. The new batch should respond well to lube.

    Best 3x3x3 Mods (Reduce popping, increase speed)

    What are the best mods for the 3x3 to reduce popping, increase speed, and reduce locking? Video tutorials would be nice. Thanks.

    This isnt really a mod but a piece swap. I took the core and center-pieces of an Aolong (I dont know V1 or V2) and used the edges and corners of a weilong. It pops often, if the tensions are very loose, but other wise it is very fast, cuts about 45 degrees forwards, and 1/2 cubie backwards/reverse
