My ZhanChi is the only one of my two speed cubes that is lubed and tensioned and my FangShi isn't broken in either. But I usually get better times on the FangShi, because my ZhanChi pops sometimes (the FangShi never pops. Even if you try) and because the FangShi is slower, I can look ahead at max TPS and have nearly no pauses during solves. Getting my FangShi actually dropped my average by two seconds and got me sub-20, which I really didn't expect, especially as it's black and white (I've only ever used black cubes before). It's also 2.6mm smaller.

Wow, that was the worst start ever. Don't know how I got a NL sub-14; it didn't feel like a fast solve so I didn't really try at the end, until half way through the H perm I saw it was 11.xy.

Used my white Weilong which i still havent lubed just changed the stickers to the standard dayan shades. I just use it cause it flows well for me and my old zhanchi was starting to pop more often than i liked

MatejMuzatko - Race to sub 15: 0/3 (15.84) Number of sub 15 solves: 15
18.75, 20.97, 16.81, 12.18, 14.02, 14.81, 15.43, 14.17, 13.29, 13.63, 15.51, 21.09, 16.39, 16.39, 16.88, 15.09, 13.39, 22.23, 16.35, 21.01, 13.37, 14.77, 12.84, 13.06, 14.82, 14.75, 14.34, 12.53, 21.43, 15.01

I used MoYu WeiLong - my main... I like it because it beats all my cubes... without any modding... I always explain it like: It's something between GuHong and FangShi for me... It has all the stuff I love and GuHong and I love on fangshi mixed together...

The format of this race is:
- 30 solves
- As you do the 30 solves, count how many sub xx solves (where sub xx is the goal/race you're in) you get
- In your post, include: Round number, Race that you're in, average, number of sub xx solves, and the times
- Also include your results in the following format:
Your username - # of sub x's (the average) // x/3
x = number of times you got at least 20 sub x's in the past round(s) for that specific sub-x
- If you get at least 20 sub xx solves 3 times in a row, you've graduated, unless you want to keep continuing to ensure you're sub xx
- New rounds are every Monday
- If you have any questions, ask in a post! Round 103 Scrambles:

Once again, fail. Especially near the end. It wasn't just me going slowly like in the past few weeks (except for the OLL skip which was a 19.64), but I was making loads of mistakes. The one with all the D face edges on D especially. My I probably 'solved' about 7 F2L pairs that solve. And my DNF, like all the 5-6 DNFs I've had this week, was a failed Z perm. My Z perms are usually really good, but when I'm timing myself they just fail most of the time.

Got a PB Ao100 today, but bad start. Then got it sub-19, then I completely fail the ending (again), starting with an easy blue X-cross on which I then completely failed the F2L. I thought that I could finally get a normal average in this comp, then I get a stupid amount of sup-20s and get a sup-19 average. And I really need to stop DNFing MU PLLs :fp
