One more thing you can do is get a craftsman screw extractor. I've never tried it on an RC screw, but they say it works for every kind of stripped screw out there..

Default i got it out

thanx randman, i got it out with a flathead. I still can't lower the car though, could it just be a mistake in the setup, because if i want to move the front shocks up, they rub on the caster block. I think i'll just screw the setup, and just make the thing run right first.

Make sure you built the car right, go back through the instructions and be sure everything is how it's supposed to be. You really shouldn't have a problem getting the car to sit at the right ride height.

Default usually

usually, the preloader, isn't that far down, it's actually really close to the top right, because, well, i got my car down, but th preloades really just hold the spring now, and don't have a big affect on tension of it, but who cares, it's lowered, thats good enough.

May I ask your help for a good setup for stock racing with a G+ on a very tight carpet track with a lot of 180 turns, only 50' straight, only on foams with front diff or spool?

It's extremely important if you're using the graphite chassis. It keeps your batteries from shorting out on the chassis. I just use electrical tape on my car. It's easier to apply and works just as well.

do you mean the clear plastic sticker? it's suppose to prevent your batteries from shorting... graphite conducts electricity...
