Okay guys, for some reason there are only 5 valks that I know of (probably a lot more then that but Im only sure of 5 existing) that have this setup. I was talking with my delegate about 2x2 hardware and I said that I like the Valk 2 but its just too slow, what he said next changed my life. "Have you tried the spring swap?" Swap your valk springs for MGC 2x2 springs and it will become much faster. Mine feels like an MGC but a little less hollow and more flexible. I main my spring swapped valk 2 alongside my mgc 2x2
Even MGC springs work wonders.

Tengyun V2 settings?
Just curious about this. I’m using magnet 3, 0.8 for centrepiece travel, and 0.5 for elasticity. 30 quarter screw revolutions. Pretty good, but I overshoot sometimes on OH. The Tengyun is a naturally pretty fast cube though.

Alright, so I took the springs and screws out, and then put them back in, and the issue seems to have been fixed. Unfortunately i dont have mgc springs, even i have heard that they work wonders.

So I want to know what everyone does for their Gan X cause I have a setup I like but I am wanting to change it up, I did the math and there is 16 possible setups so I want to se what ya'll got!! also if you want you can put in lube and stuff!
Edit: Just realized there are actually 48 possibility because there are 3 tensions on each set of nuts, please tell me if I am off!
