Building your car : Thread locking

If your kit involves any screws that thread into metal parts, you'll need to use a thread lock compound to keep the screws from loosening. On the Losi XX and XXT the three screws that tie the transmission to the motor plate need thread lock. The standard thread lock compound is blue Loctite 242

We also have the Thread lock from BSI in our range, see here the info :

BSI’s IC-Loc™ thread lockers are anaerobic adhesives that cure in the absence of air, which occurs as a threaded fastener is tightened. They prevent the loosening of fasteners due to shock or vibration. Full strength is reached in 1-3 hours. IC-Loc is not compatible with most plastics. For best results, all surfaces should be cleaned before the application of IC-Loc. IC-Loc should be store at temperatures above 45ºF and less than 80ºF.


IC-Loc Blue is a medium thickness, medium strength thread lock that is applied to the threads of fasteners before assembly. Once the IC-Loc Blue is cured, the fasteners can be disassembled with standard hand tools if required.

IC-Loc Red is a medium thickness, high strength thread lock that is applied to the threads of fasteners before assembly. Once the IC-Loc Red is cured, the fasteners are permanently together and cannot be disassembled. IC-Loc Red will maintain its strength up to 490º F.

IC-Loc Green is a thin, medium strength thread lock that is applied to fasteners that are already assembled. IC-Loc Green wicks down into the threads of fasteners using capillary action and has good performance even with oil coated fasteners.
