http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yikJzAb1cUHello, my high school is participating in a Rubik's (you can do the cube) group competition and I've been coerced into going. As part of the rules, competitors must use Rubik's brands cubes. Are there any good mods that make the Rubik's brand cube usable?
I just lubed mine with some extra Calvin's lube I had (Since I'm not planning to get new cubes anyway), I just put a small bit on the core and made a line on an edge piece and it seems to be working pretty good now, except that mine locks up somewhat easily.So the first cube I learned on was a Rubik's Brand 3x3, and haven't looked after I got my Zhanchi, my first speedcube. However, it seems quite wasteful to see it sit there and gather dust. Are there any relatively mods I can do to it to improve its speed and turning? I did lube the pieces with Vaseline (I'm not using my precious Lubix on it XD).
I did this too, people said it's the best HuanYing they tried, but still didn't seem too keen on the cube. I like it though, apart from the occasional corner twists, so break it in and you should have a nice cube. Mine responded very well to 50k diff oil.As you can see, I basically just modded that sharp edge on the base of the corner. Overall, this mod made the cube faster and smoother.
Are the edges on the Weilong corners sharp enough for modding to make a difference?I did this too, people said it's the best HuanYing they tried, but still didn't seem too keen on the cube.
