    It will always have those 4 in it (well, those in hte step). It's hard to explain so here you go

    It's like that.

    I don't know how my memory is so good..I can look at almost anything and if I'm given a few seconds I can have it memorized. It's rare I forget something (my parents say I have selective memory though )

    Ever try one of these?

    I can get it to one off on each of 3 of the 4 sides (one side perfect, woot!), but that's as far as I've ever gotten with it. You think the same algo might work?

    That has 3 layers sorta like a 3x3x3 so that algorithm I gave will only work for a 4x4x4(x6x6x6 too)

    I've never messed with those but it's the same concept. I'd need a picture of what you currently have on it to tell what you'd need to do

    Actually looking back at the video. I could achieve 55 seconds if I look ahead and see my options when I finish solving a section. I have moments in there where I just look.

    Also, if I learned finger tricks (greatly improves speed) I could get an average of 50 seconds. That's about how fast my method is..I'm learning the fridrich method though so hopefully within a few months you will see my times jump down to 20 seconds

    Trying one of those right now at the moment . Gotta say I love it.

    Though I don't think there is a fine line where I can compare and say one is better then the other .

    3x3x3, 4x4x4, 32-24-36, what's the diff? Seems like we're on point - it's just that sometimes the edges have curves.
