I was taking my board apart to put a new sensored motor on my board. Rode it about 4 times before and didnt use loctite. Already had screws loose everywhere. Wheels, gear drives ugh. how i found the screws on my Jenso Drive. Use loctite on everything… also a helpful tip bc loctite runs and stuff. Bought empty nail polisher bottles to control my liquidsXD
I wanted to be that person but I knew someone would beat me to it lol
Red can be more trouble than none when it never comes off and strip your stuff. Go blue or green or something. Teflon tape works well but not too well
Lol i know, just incase someone was new to build and was feeling lazy… cough cough… meXD
Not only do i use it I also smell it it smells lovely.
Hmm, yeah not bad actually… ive heard cocaine smells good?..lmao, just incase someone is slow…that was a jokeXD if i need to delete just say so:P
seriously you have teflon taped all those tiny screws? another day another adventure.
Now I know why the windings in your motors are so precise.
I haven’t. I have the tape that’s as far as I got. Yea they’re small screws
That chloroform smells nice. Ladies love it too
I did the same thing on my jenso drive and damaged my gears on my first build two years ago. Tough lesson learned. Jenso and everyone on here always preaches this info so it makes you feel even more silly.
I only ride ONE time to test stuff without Loctite, and stuff is always loose after that one test ride.
I use this a lot especially on stuff I don’t need to remove. It will release with heat though but it holds really well on bigger screws. It also works well on pulleys in much the same way as 680. Has a filling quality.
Its liquid thread tape essentially
Permatex Gel threadlocker is great… doesn’t run as much as loc-tite
I always use loctite but didnt think about the nail polish bottle.
Oh my goodness, damn you autocorrect. There are different types of loctite, right? What kind is good for what parts of the board?
@Skunk you answer this one
Purple for anything really tiny… Blue for anything that you want to be able to unscrew with hand tools and a bit of force Red for anything that you want permanent… Requires a lot torque or heat to undue
Green for bearings
Thanks so much! Just ordered some, I assume Amazon is the cheapest source?
