I have Caltech Winter 2011 coming up next weekend and I realized that after a break from cubing that it has loosened itself up drastically. The screws themselves haven't loosened but the cube feels extremely fast and uncontrollable. Has this happened to anyone else? Any tips on fixing it? I thought about trying to over lube it with shock oil but I have had experiences in the past with it actually doing the opposite of how I intended...

Those are the same cubes..
I mean, is it a plain Guhong? Or with the mods used in the Lubix Ultimate? Or with the the Lubix Elite mods?

When checking out camcuber's video comparing his custom Guhong, Lubix Ultimate and Lubix Elite, I think he likes his Guhong best. Or is it?

Yes the cube was a Guhong, just a guhong. I'll try to do the hardware swap after the comp to ensure that I don't make anything worse and if I can't use the cube i'll go with my Memory.
