Hi everyone, I'm about to straighten (again, second time, didn't get it good the first time) the front shock tower of my Wltoys 144001 (don't ask what happened, it includes my uncle), and I was wondering if I could use (blue 242) Loctite on the screws that hold all 4 shocks to their respective shock towers. I, like some people, leave the screws/nuts in question slightly loosened so that (so that there's a little bit of rotational play), in a crash, I can hopefully prevent bending my shock shafts (if it's a smaller crash), or just break less stuff (in a bigger crash), hopefully. The thing is, since they are not snugged down, they like to loosen too much over time, which is annoying. Could I just put a little bit of Loctite on the threads where the nut sits? I'm mainly wondering if there will be any unseen/hidden drawbacks to doing this, thanks!
