Hey, i just got my White DIY cube today :D and i am planning on putting it together. only one problem: i do not know how tight the center cubes should be to the core. I want to put this thing together with godly percision so if anyone has any pointers on how tight or loose it should be, it would be VERY much appreciated! thanks

Keep it loose at first, tyr the tension by doing a few solves. Then if it feels bad or pops looads, tighten. Then repeat!

Ron and Ton told me to tighten the screws pretty tight, at least in the beginning. Then play with it for a while, and then lube and tune it (if my memory serves me well)

Maybe you should follow their advice then, they've been solving alot longer than me!

They way I said, was just the way I did it!

How tight are your guy's cubes. Do you like them moderatly tight or really loose?

Making it tight will break it in faster ;)
