I actually have two questions.
Has anyone tried making a square-1 mod that's like a Rubik's Tower/2x2x4?
Has anyone tried making a Rubik's Clock that uses magnets instead of bumps as the alignment mechanism?
Magnetic for everything except 3x3, 2x2, and 3BLD. I do main magnetic cubes for those events, I just feel like that's when they're least necessary.
Also magnets shouldn't matter for FMC, but that should go without saying.
This is a hard question for me to answer, since I like every WCA event. If what I practice most would equal my favorite events, it would be:
...but I also like megaminx, square-1, OH, and 3BLD even though I don't do them as much
I average about 3:30 on 6x6 and haven't improved in months. I make sure not to turn fast, and my centers are usually around 1:30, with my edges being a little over 1:00 and my 3x3 stage taking about 25-30 seconds. What could I be doing wrong and how can I get to sub-3?
I also wanted to know the answer to this, so I messaged my boy Kerry Creech for some advice. He told me he does ring pushes for l' and r, and for r' and l he does a sort of table abuse by picking up the pyraminx by its r and l tips but letting the b tip rest on the table/whatever he's solving...
Something I've found out for nerves at a competition, no idea if this is just me or other people are like this too:
Don't warm up before a solve with the same cube you're about to solve. I've found out that when I warm up doing this I tend to not overthink my official solves as much because...
I believe they mainly use L4E, yes.
As for hardware, I personally would say the YuXin Huanglong, but the Shengshou Mr. M is becoming a popular choice due to Steven Wintringham and John Gaynor. I think people still use the MoYu mag (Tymon's main) and the XMD Bell, but I find both of those lacking...
Forgive me for posting about hardware instead of methods/fingertricks, but how am I supposed to set up my AoYan? I always end up making it too slow or fast and locky, and I can't find a way to make it better.
