Get some Loctite red:

(use blue if you want a less permanent fix)

A container like this lasts me over a year and I work on cars nearly every weekend.

Pick "surface insensitive" a.k.a. "oil resistant" while you're at it. About the same price, but much more universal. Also, in some cases gel is more convenient. Here's the stuff I use:

If you're confident that what you see is the location of the leak, try tightening the plug. If that is impossible or tightening it fails to stop the leak, the plug must be removed and the threads of the plug must be coated with something that will seal the threaded connection. There are many products out there that provide a waterproof seal to pvc threads. This is my favorite. By far. Very user friendly. Never fails.

Not a bad idea, especially if you just go with regular M6 flange nuts, but you'd probably need to use high temp loctite.

Follow the directions and you'll be fine. You'll need a Phillips screwdriver to build it, and that's about it. If your Phillips screwdriver is one of those types with "bits", you'll need a regular one as there is a hole that those other ones won't fit in. Everything else should be included, including grease. You might want some threadlock for the metal to metal fastenings:

You will need a radio, receiver, servo for steering, and battery and charger. You picked a non-performance model here, so you won't need high-end stuff. You could probably get by with a cheap Futaba servo:

For radio and receiver I'm hoping someone else can help. I have a Spektrum radio and receiver that I like a lot, but there are cheaper ones - I see Flysky(?) thrown about here often.

For a battery, I recommend a 2S lipo pack such as this. A 5000mah pack will give you around 20 minutes of hard run time and maybe more. Pay attention to how the wires exit the pack! Wires that poke out the end won't work. Neither will the kind that exit the top. You want a pack with wires that come out the corner.

Shop around on the charger. Get a lipo balance charger. Maybe someone can recommend a good one for you as I've got a fairly expensive dual charger. Help me out guys!

Here's my setup. I just removed the screw in the top, center of the visor, flipped it around, and replaced the nut with one of these. Then I used some Locktite (there are different strengths, you can get stronger than this one if you never plan on taking off the mount) to make sure it stays on.

Here are the steps to take off the visor:

  1. Remove the padding in the helmet.
  2. Remove the e-clips inside the helmet by your ears.The rods and padding that holds the visor will fall out, put those in a cup or something.
  3. Gently pull the mouth of the visor away from the helmet. Now you can access the nut holding the top, center screw on. Use a socket driver or adjustable wrench and a phillips screwdriver to take that screw out.
  4. Now the visor is off and you should be ready to install the mount.

    When you're done and have the visor reattached, gently slide the visor up and down on its rail. Mine got shifted and scratched the carbon fiber right next to the rail, so be gentle on your first go to make sure everything is properly aligned and won't damage the glossy finish.
