Does diff oil like traxxas have an expiration date?. I'm thinking of buying a bottle but I don't cube that much so it might just rot before it runs out.

That's premium lube. Im talking about the silicone stuff. The cubicle brand is cheaper than traxxis on their website. I use weight 4 and it is right in the middle of not too heavy and not too light.

I bought a 50cc traxxas 50k bottle from amazon for about $10. However it doesn't seem to be available anymore. The 10k 30k 50k bundle is still available on Amazon and each one is available on ebay.

Also apparently traxxas 100k exists lol




shitty pro tip: hands slippery? cover your fingers and the surface of the cube in traxxas 50k! no more slippery plastic!

i use my own lube and i only lubed once and threw the rest away because i won't have to use it anymore
i used coconut oil and handsoap to make it and it made my cube feel more crunchy and smooth, also a bit more controllable.
I have a lineup of currently 4 different lines I make for my cubes. It is pretty fun to do.

In my house, studying
Wow, I remember i never WD-40, so I lubed my first speedcube with a random bicycle chain lubricant. It smelled, and I practiced with my Rubik's brand back then. That was 5 or 6 months ago, now the cube doesn't smell, is smooth, but has a black residue inside it. And when I used coconut oil, it hardened:(

Hi, I'm newbie cuber
I want to ask what is diferent between gan standard lube vs gan magic lube?

Thanks
i think the standard lube is just okay, while the magic is supposed to be better.
However i dont use the gan lubes as i dont really think people like to use it.
