Been doing the same V60 most days for quite a while. Maybe there's something to be said for simplicity. Here's what I've been doing for a while with very good and consistent results.

Pyrex measuring cup + Bunn standard issue (Reg 6001)

Press the flat-bottom filter down. Similar to Kalita Wave--except it didn't cost $35.

The sides cinch together "automatically."

After a nice hot bath pour out rinse/pre-heat water. Filter clings strongly to the sides and bottom. Drop in coffee. (Incidentally, SM's Nicaragua Finca La Tormenta; City+; stoopid good; juicy, subtle sweetness of honeysuckle.)

Add brew water. No need to worry that Jupiter hasn't aligned with Mars or that you haven't gotten a blessing from a shaman before you begin a mystical pour technique.

Full-infusion brew with filtration at the end. Same principle as CCD--just not plastic, and much/most of the brew is separated immediately, allowing for precise timing.

After brew I gather the excess paper that cinched around the edges and lift it out. Much/most of the coffee separates immediately. I hold it up for about 20 seconds to allow most--not quite all--of the remaining brew to drizzle out.

Easy for small to medium brews.

Good stuff. Typical 160ml cup for me. In my Victor.

How long is your brew time?
How much coffee?
I normally use 18 grams for 12oz water.
Obviously, with an 8oz pyrex, and a 6oz Victor cup, you're going maybe 7oz water 12grams coffee?

BTW, thanks to YOUR posting a while back, I now have some Victor cups...CraigA, my good and dear friend bought them for me.

Well that was kind of CraigA! I have some updates on Victors, but haven't had time to work through it yet.

I use a similar ratio that I've used for pourover/drip, about 2 grams per ounce, give or take a tad depending on the coffee. Maybe a range of 1.8 - 2.2 g /oz.
As far as time, I'm just beginning to experiment, but I've done 2:30 and 2:00 brew before "lift out and drizzle out." Then I let it drizzle ~20 seconds.

Yes, roughly an ounce, maybe an ounce and a half remain in the baggy grindy cluster. I have Pyrex one cup, two cup (2 actually), and four cup. Great for everything. I've used the two cup so far, but the one would be as good. However, the size of the Bunn (Reg 6001) filters fit, cinch, and cling in the two cup really well.

Seems pretty forgiving for a little variance, but this is what has worked nicely so far.

I tried steeping coffee grinds in a loose-leaf tea bag once but the results were...disappointing.  It seems that maybe having the grinds sit open gets a better extraction.  Do you find that over those 2-2.5 minutes there is a lot of heat loss since there is so much surface area exposed or do you cover the top while it's steeping?

Ah, 2 cup. I used my 1 cup (holds about 2 extra oz over the line, looks exactly like yours...I goes just smaller.
I steeped 2 minutes.
Gonna try my 2 copper.

Still, (and not to discount your method here!) I believe my Clever cup basically does the same thing.
But those without one should try your gig!
I covered mine with the CC lid.
