I think blue is the best for our application.

Default If you are having trouble,

Use Heavy Duty Lock Tight! Normally this is not what you would use but, in some cases it is needed!

HEavy duty.. you mean red?

I'm having a great time with blue.
I found that using a slightly generous amount of loctite ensures that none of my bolts ever come out.
I actually leave some loctite in the head area too. So this holds the head in place and resists movement.

After it cures.. I really have to fight it if I wanna take it off.

Default Yes,

I personally have not had to use it but, I have read that some screws and nuts just don't stay in place without it! I would be worried about getting the screws loose when needed but, it is also not much fun when you have to call it a day because your truck fell apart! I read it in one of the Mags in the "Tip" section! One of the readers had trouble with his Monster Pirate and that is what they said they had to do to fix the problem with there test truck as well!
