New 4×4 Record!

On the same day that Feliks broke the 7×7 world record, with a 2:08 showing, I managed to shave four seconds off my modest 4×4 personal best. A 2:14+ time may seem quaint to these speedcubers, but it’s the best I’ve ever done. My newest cube, a stickerless QiYi MoFangGe Snow Leopard, isn’t really great. It’s exploded several times and I am pretty sure I lost a record just in trying to keep it from doing so again. However, a parity-free run this morning yielded a pretty good time. While I don’t think a sub-two-minute run is ever to be in the cards, I’ll remain humble with this new record.

4×4 Best Of 5 Average

I figured I’d keep going with this 4×4 thing. I didn’t break my record…but all five runs were pretty good!


That’s an average of 2:53.77. Not so bad!

It was a calm fourth of July night. The day was insane and I sat down to relax. No PS3, of course…what to do…what to do…I could read, play the 360, Vita, chill, anything! Ah…some 4×4 runs, why not? Seven runs later, my average was 3:13.92. Not too bad, really. Worst time was 3:41 (WTF?!) Best run? 2:41.40!!! Oh yeah! I broke my goal of 2:45 and beat my record by 7 seconds. Thank you no parity! Anyways…I’m happy. Now to clean the house. Urgh.

New Cubing Record: 4×4 – 2:48.12

Incremental new best times, I realize, but hey, I’ve never solved it faster! There were a few sure-thing solves that fell into disgust. One had me taking about a minute to solve the last layer alone. Pathetic. However, today, it’s good news. A new record, a second faster than the last. 2:48.12. I won’t complain!

After my record-setting run of yesterday I noticed a dilemma…I don’t think it was my record! I found an older time that would’ve been the true record! Alas, there is no real problem, just break it again! I quite enjoy my 4×4 but after Aiden chewed on it, the stickers are a mess. I need to buy more. I also need to re-tension it. However, for now it’s still great, and was good enough to help me break my record! Not bad!!!

New Cubing Record: 4×4 – 2:50.96

I haven’t been speedcubing much lately but I decided to grab my 4×4 and give it a go. My living room was too stuffy, dark and hot so I went to the kitchen, turned the fan on and enjoyed a cool spring breeze. I have been frustrated as of late so it was so refreshing to see my record broken by a few seconds. My centers were really fast (sub-30 I believe) but my middle layers were horrible. At one point I just stared for several seconds, lost. I had a great final layer though, which was my saving grace. No parity and a lucky draw = a new record!!! 2:50.96!
