Thanks Jack.

I did that, and unfortunately, I over done it, and ruined the chassis. and the screw wont' come out cuz I over dremeled it and the screw is flat into the front hub. So now, i have a ruined chassis, ruined front hubs.

I guess I just have to order the chassis and the hubs... damn... it's gonna cost a lot!...

I've been seeing these commercials about the Craftsmen Screw-Out Damaged Screw Remover.

They come as different sized bits which attach to your screwdriver or rotary tools. The tip is a special shape which claws and digs in the screw to get friction. Maybe you could consider buying a set.

ISO,

Thanks for the link. I would buy a set. I wish I know about this tool before I tried to drill, and dremel the chassis to get it apart. Thanks.
