i'd be interested in some 4x10 and 4x12 button heads, used to hold the steering blocks into the caster blocks on the associated buggy. Seems without red loctite in the hole, one of them seems to work its way out.

100% False, Yes the Diff cup screw's can strip if your using a Dull Worn out driver, BUT to claim all the hardware is Garbage is Not True by any stretch of the imagination. The SCTE screw's are the exact same found on the 1/8 cars and are Just fine and dandy if you have the proper sized driver's.

Default Good News!! The Screws are ready!!

Hey Guys,

I should receive the screws tomorrow and I will be sending them out to all of you who requested them on Friday. I look forward to your test results in the near future and maybe these screws will solve some of your current issues with Loctite.

Thanks,

Tim

All the areas I can think where I would want this are:
Servo saver posts- bottom M4x10 (countersunk), top M3x12 (countersunk).
Motor mount- bottom though chassis M4x10 (countersunk), top motor screws M3x12 (caphead).
Grub screws for CVD's M4x4,and M5x4.
Pipe hanger bottom through chassis M4x8 (countersunk), and M4x4 grub.

This seems to be the normal sizes for most kit.

+1 on those, especially the CVD grub screws.

But, wouldn't it be nice to not have to, and be able to reuse it 100 times!
If it really works as stated then you would have piece of mind.
Some people have roported that their motor mount screw back out even when locktited.

According to the guys who designed the application it is far superior to loctite. This is a military grade applicaiton not consumer grade as is the case with loctite. Now there are a few different applications we could try on the motor mount screws if the first round of tests doesn't work. The application on these screws is an all around app, we also have sealents, high heat, permenant locking, etc.. If it works as it has in the past on real planes, jets, etc.. I don't think there will be any issues.

Default Screw Tests

To all:

Hopefully everyone who requested the screws for testing has received them by now. Also, I was wondering if anyone has any test results from the screws and locking ability of the compound.

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim,

Got your screws you sent me up to Canada. Just wanted to say thanks.

I only run on-road carpet 1/12th scale and 1/10 EP Touring. I have already installed the screws you sent onto the rear wheels of my 1/12th scale.

The screws seem to be really excellant quality first off. They fit my normal sized 3/32" wrench which was nice. I ended up removing the screws again today a day after installing them(to change ride height) and they came out with resistance as expected and the blue loctite was still intact. I was expecting the loctite to be a powdery mess but it wasn't. I take it thats normal?

I am attending a full weekend race event this weekend and will try the rest of the screws you sent me and let you know the results.

Hey JonseyCGy,

Thanks for the post on the screws! The blue coating should not come off under normal conditions at all. The only way to get it off would be to take it to the grinder and remove it. Also, the screws should keep their torque strength for about 100 removals or more so they shouldn't come loose anytime soon. I'm happy you like the screws also, I tried to find the highest qualitity avalaible to match with the blue coating so I could get a real test and provide a good product. Let me know how the testing goes, I know its a busy time of the year with the holidays so I expected things to be slow. Let me know if you have any questions or issues.

Tim
