I'm really struggling with Lookahead on 3x3 anyone got any tips pls
even when I turn slow sometimes I can't see or track pieces
although it may be partly because about a month ago I became color neutral so when I doing F2L on any other color other than white/yellow then I do get bad lookahead during F2L
same with me. what i usually do is just turn fast when i can and just do whatever i see and dont do lookahead. but im not color neutral.

Try to drill only F2L.

Understand the F2L transition and the solutions more fundamentally. In other words, get more efficient with F2L and tracking or influence future F2L pairs better.


Final tip, practice, practice, practice!

Try turning as slow as you need and when you are turning, don't look at the pieces you are affecting, look at the next pieces you will solve.

Yay it's finally done

What happened was that a small edge bracket popped out in the morning i couldn't find where it should go so i disassembled the WHOLE THING. Secondly when i was assembling it there was lube all over so it made the assembly even more slippery and frustrating

Plus this is my first time assembling a 4x4 so I'm glad I'm done 😌

Speed Solve Hero has a video on how to reassemble your 4x4. I use it all the time. He does talk fast though. So if you watch it, remember to pause and rewind if you were confused.
Yes i watched his video but when he had put the smaller edge brackets in for the first layer, that step wasn't quite write on my cube (it's the MGC) so i ended up watching Z3Cubing's video (he has quite nice tutorials)
