Good point..on those screws that small steel to aluminum Ive been using anti-seize makes easier removal.
Havent heard of anti-seize.. will look into it as more of the touring cars have alu bulkheads.
Cost me $150 for an old chassis and $150 worth of equipment to remove 4 screws. (Freeze, drills, lubes, screw removers, etc etc..) Nothing worked on one of them and I eventually had to drill the screw out.
What was astonishing was that the Alu mon the Losi JRXS-R was really Aircraft grade, having lost my cool I grabbed a tungsten drill bit and hand drilled with a makita cordless.. Complimenting the losi, to my surprise all those shards of metal were just the screw and the Alu wasnt even marked. Mighty hard Alu!!!
