Default Droop screws???

Is there a fix or something for these droop screws digging in the chassis?

I know you can get ones with a ball tip, i just file the chassis end of them flat, seems to minimise it abit.

Depending on the car and chassis, on many kits you can just use a button head screw

I thought and seen of that but you have to adjust from under the car and sometimes the suspension travel doesn't allow for this.

I just flaten them off with a dremel. Won't stop them from digging in completely, but it does help.

i did this with my 1/12 scale car and works great (this is for t-plates but is the same thing) , I think it would be cool to see something like this on an 1/8 scale.... I took and drilled a hole in my chassis right where the t-plate screw hits the chassis... then I took a grub screw and put it right in the hole... so then my t-plate screw hit grub screw in the chassis... that way it did not mess up my chassis... they could make something like this on 1/8scale realy easy.. then you could remove the screw in the chassis and put a new one in there if it wore out...

I know this is a little different from what you guys are thinking but my dad and I had a heavily used Kyosho SP2 chassis laying around with the droop screw marks deep into the chassis. He took the chassis to work and welded the holes over, then ground off the excess metal to make it smooth again. It seemed to work pretty good.
