It's hard to say what you should work on without knowing anything about how you solve or how fast you solve. However, the #1 thing at any level is lookahead. Make sure you're finding the next pieces while still solving the current ones. This means knowing which pieces you'll need without looking at centers. I would check out CubeSkills first; there's some great advice there no matter what speed you are. Especially check out the one on Westlund S2L in the Intermediate Techniques section. Having a structure of how you solve S2L helps massively with lookahead.

Anybody here use a black face on their mega?
I swapped my white for black
That is exactly what I did ad I'm never going to regret it because it looks so cool

Hey guys, does anyone know a good setup for the Galaxy V2 M? Mine is feeling a bit slow.
I like a little bit of traxxas 10 k on the tracks and silk (lubicle or cubicle labs) on the pieces. It gives mine a more controllable feel. If you want something where the cube is really fast and the pieces glide together I wouldn't use this setup, but this is my personal favorite setup.

I swapped gray for black, instant and noticeable improvement in LL recognition. People complain all the time about white/cream recognition problems but it's really not that bad. I had problems with it for like a week after I first got a galaxy v2 but they went away after that. In low lighting, it can be difficult sometimes, but I really don't have any problems whatsoever in good lighting.

1. Lube it with the right lube
2. Remove all of the center caps and start trying to get the right for you setup
3. If you are brave look at the core and clean it
4. I need you tell me before how many time you have bought it

hey, does any one have any tips for improving efficiency on f2l and s2l? I average 1:15 and use the Westlund S2L method but I think my biggest weakness is efficiency and doing U3's and U'3's a lot
I average 1:20 and am not super efficient, but I know what helped me a lot was watching example solves. Feliks has really good ones on cubeskills, and there are loads of other ones from fast megaminxers.

You could, but I still think it's not really worth it. It's really just too many wasted moves. Plus, with Petrus, ZBLL is an important benefit of doing EO, but obviously megaminx ZBLL is impractical. The EO step of LL normally is super fast so LL isn't helped that much. Doing the last side of S2L 2-gen is nice, but not really worth spending time thinking about and doing EO.
