I would recommend Traxxas 10K. Couldn't find a link on Amazon but wherever there is an online cube store near you they should have it.

EDIT: I would recommend the YJ Yulong V2 M, it is the best budget cube imo.

I have done a lot of research as my cubes are losing lube and found a few I think I would really like. (I want a cube that's fast, but still smooth and barely controllable).
1. MAX Fleet
2. MAX Command
3. Traxxas 10k

How do these lubes compliment each other? Also, would you recommend any other lubes in conjunction with these? I know I want these, but don't know how they do with each other if the combination would be incomplete.

IDK really know much, Max Fleet just makes your cube insanely fast with no drag, Command slows it down, so instead of 10K I would go with Silk, to add a smooth feeling. But there’s nothing objectively wrong with 10K.

Thanks! I think I'll drop the 10k and go with Silk. Also, sidenote: As my lube us running out on my cube, it changes feel ALOT. I'll just do a solve and suddenly, it's super gummy. Then, 5 minutes later, it'll be smooth and fast. What causes this?

So, during quarentine, I can't really buy any lube and the only thing available is car polish and furniture polish, I've heard that Asian people use it as lube but I don't know, will it damage my cube?

There's no way I can buy lube during quarentine and my cube is DRY, is furniture polish lubeable?

try it, what could go wrong if other cubers use it??

The problem is the solvent "aliphatic"

Not lubing your cube damages it? I don't have any lube for the rest of quarentine so it worries me that I may damage my cube using it dry...

look at this Link for other substances that can be used for lube, i don't know if it mentions polish but maybe it has other other substitutes.
Well, technically anything can be used as lube, even water, I'm just worried that it might eat the plastic, I did some research and it says that it's only used for removing grease

under your bed.
You created three different threads for roughly the same question, in future cases like this just make one thread. I don't know about furniture polish as lube, but I would say just keep your cube dry, it won't damage it and it won't damage your times very much.
