Default Exhaust leak RTV or gasket?

My muffler bolts keep getting loose don't know if it's from the gasket that's crappy or the vibration of the motor. I have a Redcat Rampage chimera and I have to keep tightening it every run I recently use Loctite and it seemed to stay in place but I have an exhaust leak there's a little bit of oil on the engine and I have to keep cleaning it now when I take off this gasket I'm wondering if using Ultra copper RTV for the gasket any thoughts would be appreciated

Prep the bolts and hole with locktite primer-t before using blue locktite. A gasket is best but you can use high temp rtv. Make sure the threads are good in bolt holes.
