    History of the best speedcubes?

    I'm doing a presentation for my Research Paper class on the history of 3x3 single world records. Obviously just listing out who got them, when, and how fast they were would be boring and wouldn't qualify as research, so I want some background info! What I'm looking for is the most popular...

    Torque on Conventional Cubes

    Hello, I am a student doing a robotics project, you guessed it, a Rubik's cube solver! The device will user linear solenoids to press grasping claws, rotated by steppers or servos, onto the cube faces. Two questions: -Does anyone know the torque required to turn the face of a standard Rubik's...

    Have we reached the limit to 3x3 hardware?

    So, I have recently been thinking about how GAN has been releasing soo many new 3x3s with each one, “surpassing” the last. Which brings up the question, have we reached the limit on 3x3 hardware? When the 356X came out everyone switched to it and it instantly became soo many people’s main 3x3...

    Magnet polarity change.

    This probably wouldn't work, but would it be beneficial to reverse the magnets in edges so the pieces repel each other instead of attracting? It would still align the faces well i think, and it would reduce friction as well. Although getting strong enough magnets to actually cause any friction...

    GMS Magnets Strengthening?

    Before purchasing my Gan X, many reviewers stated that the strongest (clear) magnets weren't very strong. I prefer stronger magnets in my cubes (such as the GTS3 M magnets) but decided it would still be worth trying it out. After playing with the Gan X, I realized the magnets were quite weak...

    WTB Old Type-C, Type-C v1.5, or Type-C Retooled.

    I've grown a bit nostalgic for when I first got into cubing. My favorite cubes, after some time cubing (badly), were my Type-C and Type-F. My Type-F survived, as well as all of my Type-A cubes (versions I through V), Type-C v2, Type-C v3, Type-D, and Type-F v2. My Type-C v1, however, took a fall...

    New Hardware Won't Get You Faster

    As long as you are using a somewhat modern cube, hardware won't get you faster.... Warning to all newer cubers: you don't have to buy every single new cube on the market because it won't make you faster....

    DaYan Zhanchi popping like crazy, very catch-happy. Suggestions?

    Hi all, I have a 55mm black DaYan Zhanchi that I have about ~600 solves on. It's not my main so it's not a huge deal, but it was my first proper speedcube so it's got a special place in my heart. It was very smooth and didn't catch often. However, I opened it up and lubed the core with...

    Fangshi ShuangRen Illusion tension problems

    My Fangshi Illusion finally came in the mail to finish Fangshi Collection. However, I like my cubes really really really loose. So this causes some problem with the Illusion. Since the center caps are recessed into the center pieces, I can't have the tensions super loose like I like them. If...

    [Help Thread] Lubrication Thread

    I keep seeing all of these questions about lube. I think it would be good to keep lubrication questions all in one thread about where to buy and what lube to use for what cubes. Lube Types (Descriptions by Thrawst) Lubix is like UN Security Council resolutions: it's not a be all end all...

    Edit: Please find the latest suggestions in this thread here. Ok, so I am really sick of people asking what kind of cubes should they get. It seems that I have started the "The XXX Thread" wave at this forum, although some of the threads are pretty useful, the invarible title really annoys me...
