Are you saying your Type D screws won't go in all the way? That problem is probably coming from you Type A core. Get another old Type A core, and try it.I put an old type A core into my type d and its not as good as i thought it would be. Its super loose and pops very easily. Also the type d screws just can't seem to tighten in type a cores, so i put the old type a screws with type d springs into the type a core. Anyone know where i am going wrong?
Yes you can't get screws far into the Type D core. Even at its maximum it's still very loose.Got my Type D today too - and after lubrication and re-fixing the screws (to max) the cube is just....very loose Oo I mean surely it turns very easily but it seems just a bit too loose to me cause by being so loose, it locks more often or it makes slight moves on the D/L/R faces i didnt want to and therefore locks a bit. (i was used to an "ok-twisting-black-old-type-a" by now).
Will I profit from "sacrificing" my type-A core i also got today or will it be the same after changing the cores?
I wonder If you can switch back the cores after trying that or will the different screws (of D) sort of "destroy" the core for the screws of type A (if anyone got that )
I'm thinking you got the bad kind of Type D. The reason why you think the cubies are so bad is because the plastic is not a good quality.I just got some D’s and C’s and I now realized that everyone was lying to me except Harris Chan.
The D sucked so badly out of the box. After the lube, it suddenly became real floaty, but it’s a little choppy and locks up a bit more that type A, it’s OK, but not amazing.
THE CORES DOES NOT MATTER!!!!!!!
I changed the cores, yes, I actually got the old type A yellow cores. It is hard to find the link on cube4you, but they still sell it. It feels not any different.
Everyone who says type C is slower than type A, you are wrong. It is faster, but extremely choppy. If Nakajima uses the type C (according to Chinese cubers in another thread, type C is Rubik’s DIY), I can understand why his finger tricks are so weird. The cube is not smooth, you kinda have to adopt a choppy style.
Now here the ultimate advice:
Type D cubies are the worst cubies ever! Replace them with Type C cubies and it makes a significant difference. The result is the best cube ever. It feels like a dream everything moves perfect, smooth, faster than type A, C, or D, and doesn’t pop! At a decently tight tension, it is faster than all other cubes at loose tension.
I haven’t timed myself, but I think I can probably sub-2 on any PLL with it. And my T perm is probably twice as fast as when I used a Type A (1.7).
C core with D piece is pretty nice too. It's like type C, but beyond choppy.
