There was this guy I came across that did it, you might want to message him for now:


Didn't see a mention of what he did aside from removing them.

I took mine off. Put them back on with no loctite or anything. Rode them for 20 more hours. They seem to be holding up fine.

Not bad at all especially that you didn't use any loctite. How were you riding? was it more relaxed or a bit on the wild side?

I tend to ride more on the wild side. Not a lot of air, but plenty of 180s. I also tend to push it hard enough to flip it or get thrown (when the sponsons catch during a slide).

I would just use a dab of silicone instead of locktite. The nuts inside are just sitting in a plastic groove and if you locktite them it might destroy the groove when you try to ever remove them again. Although if your removing them to broaden the trick factor I doubt you will ever put the sponsons back on.

^ good point.

but locktite has a blue and red version, i think red is permanent and blue is for things that need to be removed at times... would you advise against the blue one?

don't put loctite on it, use rtv silicone on the screws, you are sealing the holes and threads to prevent water from entering the hull, not necessarily to lock the threads, they go into a nylock nut anyways.
