What do you mean, sparingly with the Loctite? Doesn't blue loctite come off easily?

For example, where would be a place that I absolutely must not loctite?

Firstly too much can be a real problem one of our local guys borrowed my stud lock to use on his blocks and I suspect he used a little too much and got it under the countersink as well he nearly snapped a driver trying to get it undone - it was really funny watching the panic - locktite is just a version of CA glue afterall. Personally I try to not use Locktite at all. I think it is also designed for metal threads rather than plastic as well for instance I would not suggest using in king pins.

The Cyclone parts are carbon graphite not plastic. If anything you can put a touch of the black grease (the one in the kit with the red cap) on the screw to help it go in. Even i havent ever stripped the thread on a carbon graphite part.

So i was reading the Hara guide(a pain cuz its in japanese) I noticed he didn't sand down the sides and just CA glued the chassis, is sanding necessary? Also he used a dremel to take away parts of the carbon fibre near the belt, I don't have a dremel, any other ways i can do it? Or is it really necessary? Thanks guys

You dont have to bother sanding down the side but its better for the chassis if you round of the bottom edge.

You do need to file down the battery slots and also the slots where the tape goes through (or at least the side of the tape slots where the tape wraps around ie. the bottom of the chassis on the edge closest to where the batteries sit, otherwise the tape will tear on the sharp carbon fibre edge in crashes)

Using locktite sparingly means you only want it to be on the metal threaded areas and not running to places it shouldn't. I accidently used to much on the CV's and after it dried the CV wouldn't pivot. You only locktite the areas that are labeled to use it in the assembly manual. You also never use locktite on anything other than metal to metal fasteners.

Do you use just normal sandpaper to sand the battery slots and chassis?
