    The red loctite even says on the package that it will require heat to remove. Not sure why anyone would us the red. Blue is enough to hold wheel spacers I'm sure it will be just fine for a shift knob.

    Not the arguing type but sometimes your forced to remove it. I just had my 17 totaled and desperately tried to snag every part I could off the car. This is why I wouldn't use the red. Blue is sufficient enough like I said it holds wheel spacers on the car. Blue is the right way and red is just in case Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to steal your shift knob.
    My 2 cents but hey some people may say ef the parts I'm getting another car. But insurance is going to have a hard time understanding why they are paying you for an aftermarket shift knob when they just twist off

    I hear ya man. Seeing as how mine came loose without me even trying to remove it, I guess I was too Arnold Schwarzenegger with it so I assured it wouldn't come loose again unless I want it too. I didn't pay $75 for it like some might so if it gets trashed, I'll get a new one without regret.
