Default Loctite

I know to use blue, does anyone have a preference? Liquid vs the glue stick type? And how much am using?

I'm obviously new to this, thanks for the help

Blue is more than ample for r/c, unless you want to take an impact wrench to your r/c NEVER use red...that would only be used if your going to leave whatever fastener in for a long time...
That being said, liquid...glue stick type doesn't sound right...a drop or two is plenty for any fastener.

There is some stuff that is a paste and it comes in a twist up stick. I've used the paste and the liquid and both are good. I thought the liquid held a little better though.

I've used both the liquid and stick type and they both do the job well. I prefer the stick type since it's easier for me to apply.

I've actually taken a Big bottle of blue 2/3 full and mix in a Small bottle of red, Makes kinda like a Pinky/purple mix, But ive found it to hold just that little bit more then blue and Not permanently as the red would at full strength.

Stick/Gel Vs liquid. Ill take the liquid any day. IMO the gel doesn't last long enough where as I could buy a Big bottle of blue and it'll last Years Vs a Gel tube would be gone 1/2 way through the season. (Yes I do alot of wrenching)

This was something I also wanted to know, stick or liquid. You won't waste as much with the stick. But how do they both perform.

Anyone else use vibra-tite?

It's more expensive but seems easier to apply.

Thoughts anyone?
