The ZhanChi came with both washers and torpedoes. I decided to take the entire assembly apart to reset the screws as well as retension the puzzle, but the problem still persists! The curious part of me wants to find the problem with the faulty cube. The lazy side of me wants to main the Fangshi I bought along side it.I think I know what the problem with these odd Zhanchi cubes are that keeps popping. Lunastra can you please check if your Zhanchi has any washers that sits under the screw and spring assembly. I found that with my second Zhanchi (the one that works perfectly) when I stripped and lubed it I had 6 small washers that sat underneath the springs in the center cubes which I did not have in my first one (the one with the popping problems). And we all know how important washers are for equal distribution of force in these kind of situations. If your faulty cube also came without washers we might just be onto something here.
How many solves have you done? It's probably not dead (comparing to Antoine's guhong)Hi everyone,
I have a lubix elite and it is not as fast as it was when I first got it. Its very smooth and somewhat gummy. If I try to put any lube in it, it becomes extremely slow. I cleaned out the whole cube and it still is slow and a little gummy. Does anyone know when a cube would be considered dead?
