No you dont have to let it dry before you put the screws back on ,but it wouldnt hurt to clean the threads before applying the locktight.If your locktight has been sitting around awhile shake it to mix it back together.This makes it more effective.And dont use RED locktight or youll have to have a Touch to get the screws out

Try cleaning out the screw threads and the threads in the engine mount with either soap and water or nitro cleaner. There might be leftover oil keeping the threadlock from working. Tamiya threadlock can take a while to dry since its a sort of gel type. LOCTITE makes great threadlock but there are many different brands as well. just checkout your nearest hardware or automotive store.
