I haven't seen any FTO threads yet so I decided to start one.
In case you aren't aware face turning octahedron (aka FTO) is an extremely fun unofficial event that has been taking off recently. Hardware sucks, but the puzzle is a lot of fun to solve, and hopefully better hardware gets made in the near future. There has also been a #FTOforWCA push recently because it is very unique and would fit in very well as an event!

I'm pretty new to FTO (PB is 5:08.25) and I'm wondering if lubing a lanlan FTO with Vaseline would be a good idea, since that's often what people recommend for Rubik's brand 3x3s since it eats away at the plastic. I would think the same principle would apply to the lanlan FTO, but I wasn't too sure.
