    NEW Turbo Tracking | 3x3 F2L Lookahead Technique

    There was a thread started in October 2011, talking about a technique for F2L Lookahead known as turbo tracking, I have personally been doing this for around 2 months and it has greatly improved the time it takes me to do F2L. There was a video posted in 2011 about this as well but since then...

    Muscle memory

    Warning: This post won’t end the way you think it will (not clickbait) My goal for the next half of 2019 is *drum rolls* to get sub 20. I just did a 22.46 ao12 and here are the splits: Cross/F2L/LL : 2.80 / 12.10 / 7.55 I know I can shave off up to 1.5-2 seconds of the LL stage by working on...

    Hello everyone ! I have recently been looking for a F2L trainer to help me improve my efficiency, but haven’t been able to find exactly what I was looking for. So I thought, if it doesn’t exist, why don’t you make it? Before throwing myself head first into this, I wanted to ask you fellow...

    Cross to F2L transition tips?

    I average around 26 seconds. My cross takes around 6 seconds, f2l takes around 10, oll takes 3.5 and pll takes 3.5. That all adds up to around 23 seconds. Thing is, I have an akward pause in between cross and f2l. I'll do cross, look around for 2-4 seconds for 1st pair then my solves flow pretty...

    [Unofficial] Rotationless F2L 14.82 ao5

    Did this for fun. Here someone asked the optimal rotations in f2l so I thought why not do an optimal rotation f2l? aka zero rotations in f2l and then I just made this video on a whim. Read the description in the video for more information :)

    Beginners F2L: 3 easy steps for every case

    Like most people when I was learning F2L, I just went online to figure out how to do it. After watching numerous tutorials on how it was done I had finally got it. During this time I found that if some things had been explained a little differently it would have helped tremendously in...

    F2L: 2 looks per pair

    When I was a new cuber, I thought that F2L was very difficult. There were 42 algs to learn. That's a lot of algs for a beginner. In february of this year, I began the F2L, but learned only 8 algs. With 8 algs, I could do every F2L case. If you have the edge and separate corner , you can join...

    I feel like a failure

    I have been cubing for 6-7 weeks now, and I can't get lower than a one minute average. But that's not the bad part. I have memorized 4 look last layer, I know intuitive F2l, and I have been practice constantly. Yet is still have this awful split of : 10-30-10-10 (cross-f2l-oll-pll)

    Tips on F2L?

    I can't seem to do it right. (btw my times are 30-40 seconds but its kinda redundant as i ONLY learned f2l, no OLL (I made my own memory-thing thats like a 3look OLL), and 2-look PLL. I'm too lazy to learn the other 2 since im working on f2l. Any tips? I memorized none of the f2l algorithims, so...

    Any decent intuitive F2L tutorials?

    Yeah basically the title. I tried to learn intuitive F2L but none of the tutorials really helped me. I think I just don'lt understand the concept of moving the cube without ruining the white cross, positioning the two layers correctly, and still doing it in a minimal amount of turns.

    F2L with minimal cube rotations

    So there have been a few discussions on this ( here and here ) but they are almost a decade old I'm pretty satisfied with my times and am taking step back to experiment with some new tricks. Instead of rotating the cube on F2L I'm trying to do only d and d' moves. There are some exceptions to...
