I hear you use pink nail polish, not clear. Or do you just tell everyone that it's for, "holding screws in plastic"?

Default Tite-N

It's called Tite-N-. The article was in either april or may issue of RC Car Action. It is made by Loctite but you won't find it on AMain or any LHS that I know of. Some of the hardware stores around here have it. I have not checked but you may have some luck at Home Depot as well. The shoe goo does work very well though.
