How much thread lock do you guys use when building?

The last car I build with so much carbon/metal and metal/metal interfaces was a 1/8th has car. Used to need to use it EVERYWHERE!

And on threads, titanium v aluminium - thoughts? I notice the pros use a mix, but it's inconsistent where and when. I had been told the Aluminium ones are not as good when screw into metal and definite no go for al-al pieces. But plenty of builds I've looked at seem to buck that trend.

But also screws should be a fail (shear) point, so there must be some strategy to their use.

At the moment I've got enough Ti screw lying about to do the whole thing.
