Default Leaky Wilwoods

I had a set of Dynalites on my car for three track days. On the third day, the pedal went soft because fluid had started leaking out from the brass bushing that the bleeder screws into.

Now I have Dynapro's, and the same thing happened on the first track day.

These appear to have a red RTV sealant applied to them from Wilwood. They were tight when cold (I bled the brakes the day before), but apparently the heat loosened them up after a couple sessions and they started leaking. I pulled the wheels and tightened them, and ran the rest of the day.

Is this a common problem? Should I pull them and seal them with something else? Or just tighten them more? I'm not sure if it is a tapered thread or not.

Also on that note I have a lightly used Wilwood Dynalite 11" setup for sale with directional vane rotors if anyone is interested

Thanks
