i have a rubik's 4x4 and lube it the long way. i take the whole cube apart and use a small brush to cover the whole cubies in silicon. this takes a wile but then i know that the silicon is everywhere.

my 2x2x2 (Eastsheen) turned out way better after lubing it.
same with 4x4x4 and 5x5x5.

@ John, what experience have you had with destroying cubes with lube?

eastsheen needs no lube. if you lube it u will destroy it.
I've never had any problems with my eastsheen cubes after lubing them (I lubed a 4x4, 2x a 5x5 and loads of 2x2's). [/b][/quote]
I'm with Erik especially the 2x2 I drown it with silicone.

I lubed my Rubik's 4x4 with Jigaloo...

It's REALLY fast but i don't like the unstable feeling of all the slices shifting around while doing turns
