pretty much.

I noticed that the stiffness of the axis varies from 360 to 360, stifer ones being better. I basically just ramped up the stiffness.
how exactly?
(opening it up and then? did you open it? how?)

btw: yeah i noticed that they vary a lot.
the one i originally bought was pretty stiff right out of the box, making it really easy to solve.
the one i got for free at WC2009 wasn't stifff at all and it takes me ages to solve it, because my technique doesn't work for not so stiff ones.
by now, the first takes me long to solve aswell, because it's become too stiff.

apart from that:
there shouldn't be any puzzles allowed in competition that the contestant might have modded at home making it slower or faster..
oh wait, don't we do that with cubes all the time?

it still requires skill to solve it fast, no matter how perfect the stiffness is.
so for the poll: yes, i'd like to have 360 as an official event.kick out useless events like feet and 2x2.and add skewb aswell.

i like the 360 because i find it relaxing.

Rubiks 360 is a dumb idea. The events have spread off from the 2-5 Rubik's Cubes and have branched off to other TWISTY puzzles such as the pyraminx, megaminx, square one, and so many others. If the WCA were to add another event, IMO it would definitely be a twisty puzzle such as Skewb, not a dumb gimmick that Rubik's recently released.
YES YES YES
If wer're making 360 official, let's bring out the touchcube! or even the revolution! why not go all the way, let's make Rubik's Slide official!

I can understand adding 360 but magic and master magic are already pushing the definition of twist puzzles

How are feet and 2x2x2 useless? Feet is a unique challenge and 2x2x2 is as important as 4x4x4 or any other order.

Skewb as an event would be nice too.

just my very personal opinion, i don't do feet and i absolutely don't like 2x2.
i have smelly feet but no cube i hate enough to mistreat it in such a way.
for me 2x2 just is totally pointless, because i don't know an advanced system and can't be bothered learning one, so it's basically just solving corners of any other cube. and i have big hands but only an eastsheen 2x2, which is way too small, it just doesn't feel comfortable.

btw, how is feet unique?
isn't it just using your normal system with a different part of the body?
