Using Thread Lock For Redcat Racing Parts and Other RC Hobbies

Loctite threadlocker


Making use of thread lock to secure device screws is typical practice in the RC market. Did you realize cleansing the threads with rubbing alcohol prior to using the thread locker will guarantee a much better bond? RC fuels, shock oils, and greases prevent the thread locker from working correctly, creating a weak bond. This can cause screws falling out and your new Redcat Racing hop ups falling off right in the middle of a race (how annoying)

Threadlock is created to be made use of where metal threads are placed into metal threads so it isn’t really extremely efficient on plastic parts. Always use medium strength thread lock just in case you want to remove the screw at a later time
