    Shock bolts keep coming loose

    My upper shock bolts keep coming loose should I be putting loctite on them?

    Use a little bit of superglue. Or do what I did. I used 40mm screws and drilled the screw slightly larger. Then I used a bushing that is included in the parts tree then I used a lock nut.

    This will lead to bigger issues in the future, loctite is not for plastic.

    My grandson runs that kit on his sc10, save your $10 and use you own screws and nuts.
