m8x35 sounds like a stud/bolt description. m8 thread x 35mm long.

i could be wrong though. i cant think of how nuts are described in etka @ the moment.

Blue is more than sufficient, unless you tighten like a girly man.

I snap bolts a lot [:(]. Its never tight enough for me I guess haha.

get them from here - fast reasonable shipping - and you can order small quantiles - but still quite pricey - but not as expensive as torsen washers

if you are talking about tread lock

it might not work since it is too hot around there

Blue is more than sufficient, .

somebody correct me if I'm wrong here, but IIRC the blue Loc-tite isn't designed to be used in that high of a heat application.

I'll double check in a min.

Yeah I didn't consider the heat...

When I did mine I just put a dab of blue on it and tightened a whole lot by hand and its been fine since. Which is why I figured blue

^blue is the weakest. it melted/vaporized less than 5 minutes after you turned on your car
