first
stretch the cube a bit so that the insides are visible
second
take the maru lube and put a drop inside the cube
since this is a 2x2 make sure to put a tiny amount or it will spread out and get all over the cube(even the outside)
===========
for lubing other cubes do the same,maybe even take them apart,but i wouldn't bother since maru dries off in 2-3 days
--------
if your cube pops a lot take a screwdriver and tighten the cube
that is all.

I just lubed core and pieces with Traxxas 50k. Seems to be the only cube (I only own 1 2x2) that acts well to 50k lube to the pieces. hmmm... The springy sound will go away like magic when lubed. The lubed pieces made it feel lumpy but smooth. I cannot recall any speed change though.

How to set up a DaYan 2x2?

So every stock DaYan 2x2 I've ever tried pops every time I lock up or try to corner-cut 45 degrees. I'm finally getting one of my own as I've heard everywhere that it's the best on the market, but how do I set it up so it doesn't pop? If it helps at all, I have weight 2 and weight 3 lube from TheCubicle.us. I'd also rather not purchase any other lube.
