I graduated the old sub-20 thread a long time ago, but I'm rusty and need to earn it again ;)
Awesome! I have yet to break the 1 minute mark on 4x4. My closest was a 1:05, with no parity. Now after taking a long break from it I'm having a hard time just getting back under 1:20 times. 2017 has been a bust for me on the cubing front. If anything, I'm slower than I was at the end of 2016 in...

**FINAL ROUND OF THIS RACE THREAD**
I have really enjoyed running this thread these past couple years, but I haven't been able to give it the attention it deserves lately. @PyraMaster has started a new sub-20...
Hey all. Sorry I've been MIA lately, there's just a lot going on. I'll close this round and get the next one up today. Things should be back to normal and I'll get back to weekly rounds in January.

I think that's totally normal. I pull down fairly consistent sub-20 averages when it counts, but I mostly get 21-22 averages when timing practice solves that "don't matter". When I'm practicing I'm thinking about improving, so I'm more critical of how I'm executing each step of the solve. For my...

There's nothing wrong with you, you're learning. Learning takes time. Getting fast takes A LOT of practice. I highly recommend this post if you're looking for a structured road-map to getting faster using CFOP.
Don't give up! :)

Just not feeling it today... I'll give this round one more day and close it tomorrow.
I think we're pretty much on the same page with 4x4. The Yuxin Blue has been my main since it released, but it definitely took some work to set it up right. I did a dozen or so solves with the WuQue and CB mini last night and I'm enjoying the CB mini so much more. The WuQue catches so badly I'm...
My latest cube order just arrived. I'm too impatient to do unboxing videos :P
The SpeedStacks Gen 4 Timer is really nice. I haven't tried the data port yet, but even if I can't get that working I'm glad I spent the extra few bucks on this timer. Now I can prepare myself for comp cubing... If I...

Lol. The trigger has been pulled :) Now I wait...
Holy crap dude! That's brutal. Do you OH with your left hand? I hope so cuz that right mitt is out of cubing commission for a while buddy :( Hope it heals up well and quickly.
What a cool project. Be sure to follow up when you get it working. I'd love to see it in action.
Ooh that is quite a deal, but after shipping, currency exchange, and customs fees it'll be more like $30 for me. And with Lightake I may not see it for 3+ months (they have a pretty bad track record...
Ingenious solution :)
When I first got into speedcubing I bought a cheap knock off timer because my only options were an expensive StackMat timer or the cheapo. Lets just say I got what I paid for and it never really worked. I've been considering buying a good one because if I ever do get to a...
