    Does turning RC increase your precision?

    I am cuber with times around 30s. I use Guhong for practise. I have heard some voices, that cuber should do some practise solves with cube like classic Rubiks (or other, that almost do not cut corners) to train precision in moves. Without that precision is hard to achieve good times. So I...

    Proof Reader neeed for Rubik's cube book

    I am a physicist with a CogSci background. Currently I am in the process of re-editing a self published book I wrote several years ago on Rubik's 3x3 speed training program. I don't need super Rubik's cube 3x3 experts, a beginner's point of view would also be very useful. If you are interested...

    A word about practice

    Is this all you noobs are blabbing about? See, I've practiced. A lot. And then I hit a roadblock of 30 seconds. And then I posted a speedsolving forum asking people what to improve. Then I got comments like,"This kid is trying to find the easy way out, when he should just be practicing." That...
