Default allen keys

i'm trying to take apart my RTR B4, and when I tried to take a screw off with the allen key it kinda got stripped and I didn't even turn it or force it. Now I can't take of my rear shock tower. HELP!!

you can also use a dremel and cut a flathead slot into them to get them out

Even if that is the case, a good set of hex drivers will keep it from happening again.

If it is the wrench then mip/thorp makes a great wrench also hudy tools are very good.

If it is the screw here is some tips for removal I have found online.

Drill small pilot hole then tap with left hand thread (reverse)

Heat screw to expand metal. thread lock releases at 300 degrees

Glue wrench to screw

Dremel slot to allow use of a standard screwdriver

Ez out screw remover bit

Small flat head screwdriver in hex slot

SODER WRENCH TO SCREW

Put hex driver at 45 degree angle and turn slowly. Once out enough grab with pliers.

once youve stripped the screw soldering the wrench to the screw, using the wrench at a 45 degree wont work. either get a left hand screw of dremel a slot. glue most likely wont work. never seen a glue which would hold the twisting of about the diameter of a couple millimeters.

all the screws on the B$ are hex head and stick out.

Take some pliers...grab it and twist it till it comes out. you may need to use a file to make a slightly flat edge.
