Didn't some people do some tests showing that using average movecounts for certain methods (CFOP, Roux, ZZ, etc) and I specifically remember them saying that sub4 on CFOP (60-65 average HTM) would actually start to melt the plastic?

i.e., ~12+ tps = no more plastic cube
uhh..idk if this is true anymore I guess(sub 4 fullsteps are possible and exist)
