Hello,

I bought a master axis cube. It is a mod which is made using the lanlan 4x4x4 cube.
The problem is that the cube is very loose which makes alignment incredibly hard.
Since there are no screws I wonder if there is a way to adjust the tightness of this mod.
Any ideas?
Thank you in advance :)

Best regards

Doctor Twist

I am very sorry to say, but a lanlan 4x4 cannot be tightened usually.

There is ONE option, but you have to take the thing apart then and rebuild it. There is one screw that connects the two shells, tightening that one a bit might help, but no guarantee there as it is usually very tight to begin with.

Another option is to use lube inside the pieces, like Traxxas or Lubix, and then use 50k which will make it a bit gummy and less loose to the feel.

Thank you Kattenvriendin. I will try.
What does 50k mean?

Best regards

50k is the weight. 10k is much lighter differential oil than 50k. 30-50k is comparable to lubix. I find the 50k version a tad thicker.
