I glued one piece in, and I blew it (as usual, it seems on big cubes). Now the orange side turns very poorly. So I read that spraying silicone spray into the springs would help, any idea of this? Or better solutions?

My black V-cube 7 center caps have never poped, and I don't know if I could get them to pop if I tried.

I can barely get the caps off on my white v7. It seems like they are glued on, but they aren't because the yellow one is the only one that I can pop off.

yes glue makes centre caps not fall off

you cant tension a v cube 7 unless you make a tensionable core which you probably didnt
I just have to avoid getting glue on the screws I'm guessing, since it doesn't look like those move.

use tissue paper to keep the caps on, it works good.
I do not understand How I would use tissue paper, or how it would help.

There's no way to adjust the tension? I can barely turn it.

My V Cube 3, 4, and 6 turn very smooth and easily. My V Cube 5 and 7 barely turn at all and are sort of miserable to do a solve on. I'd like to loosen them up if I can.... somehow. I was hoping it had adjustable tension screws under the center caps.
