Hey guys please help me :) I will soon get a weilong WR and some traxxas 50k lube, but I've never lubed a cube before. Whats the best way of doing it, should I lube each piece individually or should I just pull the layers apart and put one or two drops in there?

Just drop some lube in maybe two spots and work it in. You’ll overlube if you do method 1. You can add more lube, but can’t get rid off lube effectively. So a drop at a time.
By the way you can lube the centre pieces too, just look on YouTube for some lubing tutorials.

I'm having trouble deciding what lubes I should use in my TengYun, since so far Maru and some other lubes last like 2 seconds before turning into a powder that I clean shortly after. Somebody in Discord suggested to use Compound V, but I don't have it. What other choices are good?

Silk is pretty good n just about everything. I would recommend using a combination of silk and compound x to balance out the speed (thats what my friend did to his tengyun)

I’m not joking, but apparently Lars Petrus used candle wax for lube before he got silicone. Unfortunately it runs out fast, like you need to apply every week or something.
By the way CodingCuber he is trying to not buy from online shops. Have a look at WTB lubes.
