use Blue locktite on anything metal to metal. If going into plastic, and it's coming loose, either replace the part your screwing into, or use a lil CA glue.
Red loctite is to strong for Rc.

Blue loctite for any screws going into metal. Use sparingly as it is a pain stripping screws that are cemented into the car. I put a small drop on a screw and then spin the screw in paper towel to get rid of excess.

Yeah, always use blue loctite for metal to metal connections - you should never need any loctite with metal to plastic connections.

+2 but I use red. Just a lil dab. I almost never have screws come out. When I want them to come out they will with no problem. I would never use red liquid but the red stick is not as strong.

Get your blue loctite from your local auto parts store. You get twice as much for less $. I use the gel less messy than liquid, never tried the stick but I'm going to look for it.
