If you use red you will strip the screws before getting them out . Do NOT use red . Make sure you clean the screws and engine mount very good , otherwise the blue lock tite you been using won`t grab . Use lock washers a recommended with blue lock tite . Red is meant for things that will never needing to be removed , which you will eventually need to remove the engine to do maintenance , clutch replacements , and eventually a new engine .

if you use red or ca glue make sure you have a micro torch handy when it needs removing.

It seems as though something else may be to blame. A couple aplications of blue loctite and it should be doing the job fine. That is unless there is oil in the holes in the mount, or your oiling the screw before putting the loctite on. Do the screws spin right out or are they a little resistant? Maybe you got a bad bottle of loctite. Maybe you should buy a differant bottle just in case. Could the motor be hitting the chassis preventing the mounts from making contact with the chassis? Could the mounts be machined wrong so that they don't sit flat on the chassis? The threaded holes could be oversized, or the screws undersized? I think it's time to take a real close look at things.

To check the mounts, while installed on the engine, take a file and gently work it from side to side. You'll remove the anodizing from the bottom of the mounts on the high spots first. Hopefully they file off evenly across the bottom, if not then make them even. If the engine extends past the bottom of the mounts make sure there is enough room so that it will clear the chassis. Also if you can't file the mounts because the engine is in the way, remove the mounts from the engine. Mount them on the chassis and work the file on the tops of the mounts instead of the bottom. If the engine is hitting the chassis you'll find wear marks on the chassis and engine were they have been rubbing together.

Hope you can find the problem.

I understand that red if for permanent applications. That's why I did not recommend anything to solve his issue. I was just pointing out that he already uses blue and keep having the screw come loose. I use blue myself on my losi 8ight and it works great for me.
