I haven't done any timed solves because I am very slow at kilominx, however I am certain it's better because I can barely get two moves in with the Shengshou kilominx without it deforming in my hands and locking up. In that respect the stability of the puzzle is more important than the corner cutting.Have you tried comparing the kilominx times that you can get on the shengshou vs the modded megaminx? Is it actually better for speedsolving?
I didn't even consider taking off caps since none of the puzzles I have are capped. Yes it performs really nicely and the shades are nicer than the shengshou's, though at the tradeoff of smaller colored area.For a while I competed in the weekly comp with a Galaxy (v1, non-mag) with all the caps on the edge and centre pieces removed. Was much nicer to handle than the Shengshou kilominx. I'd expect that starting from the Yuhu v2 (since it's magnetic and all) led to an even better result.
Yes, it is like a 2x2 in that regard. And unlike a 2x2, there are no middle slices to spin freely, so no alignment mechanism like in 2x2s and 4x4s is needed.Cool. I think the regular kibiminx also has megaminx internal edges but they are very small so we only see the corners on the outside.
