LOL - you can blame it on your peers. first, people started snorting all sorts of things to get high, then they started taking cold medicine to catch a buzz, now someone's probalby figured out to shoot up the blue stuff.

I know in schools, kids are jamming the classroom locks with locktite. That might be the reason why you got carded. I gotta check out poison control for the new get high fad.. I just can't see locktite

Blue locktite is the way to go for RC!

snorting/drinking/injecting/huffing loctite is a top of the lin drug compared to this stuff!

well said

so blue should do

not over kill at all I just got a buggy that came with red on the wheel nuts and I used to use blue all the time but after having the screw that holds the clutch bell in fall out I went to red and it doesn't happen anymore so I say that blue is not enough for me but just like setting up a car there are no two drivers that like the same set up. Best of luck to everyone

I agree with the "to each his own" theory, the problem as I see it with the red is the need for heat to break the bond. Not practical for all purposes or those with torches handy.

I never use loctite on my tires... I put them on with CA, but whatever floats your boat!

Ok, all joking aside. Use blue loctite, on anything where a screw goes into metal... but on the motor-to-motormount screws, use lock washers instead.

<----((((shaking head)))) I can see other killer chemicals, but you must want to get high BADLY if you want to do that stuff! I don't know any crack heads that would try this mess.. Locktite would be bad, but nothing like that!

I use the blue "chapstick" version, last forever, easy to apply.
