I'm kind of a noob please don't judge my time is 52 secs

I just got a new best time of 34 seconds

argggggggggggggg my best is 35

Best time is 24 secknds

i meant piece instead of "pace" in the second line.Stupid keyboard..(:

if u pop out the pieces and "generously" use petroleum jelly{i recommend Vaseline}on all sides of the pace .place it back and try solving it.It'll work like a real dayan 5 zanchi .if you properly loosen the screws of the cube the corner cutting will be great and my record time is 23.47 secs

takes me about 3 minutes, but i just memorized the algorithms yesterday and i looked up the video the day im a pretty new cuber

Me too.Which algorithm do you find the hardest?

It's the sixth one in my opinion.

3 minutes 27 seconds
