1) whats the difference between weight 4 and 5
2) which lubes(cubicle) should i use for lubing yuexiao- core and pieces
3) if i use 4/5 for core and 1/2 for pieces for any cube how often do i need to completely disassemble, clean and lube it (because this is the first time im using cubicle, earlier i just used to lube using maru)

1. Weight 5 is thicker
2. Traxxas 50k is great for both pieces and core
Can I use any cubicle lubes instead of traxxas??
And like what's the difference observed in the feel of the cube if we use weight 5 instead of 4??
And which weight is recommended for the core, 4 or 5?

Traxxas 50k is basically the same as weight 5
If weight 5 is used on the pieces, it will be gummier than if weight 4 is used. Generally, both 4 and 5 make the cube slow, but after breaking it in they can make the cube extremely fast.
For the core, either is fine but most people use weight 5. The thicker the better for the core

I lubed the core on mine with Cubicle weight 5 just to get ride of the spring noise. Out of the box speed/tensions were actually pretty close to perfect for me.

After putting it back together and setting the tensions it was still pretty fast so I didn't even bother lubing the pieces. It has a little bit of a dry feeling which is accentuated by the sound the hollow corners make. I might put some weight 3 or 4 on the pieces just to improve the feel/sound of it, but it's fast enough as-is.
