I just grind the set screws down with a Dremel. I use an old pinion to hold the set screw in place and grind away.

You can also try McMaster-Carr http://www.mcmaster.com/ They sell all kinds of fasteners in bulk.

thanks-will uses dremel or filer.

good question,,,,on the mi4cx-to get the motor as close to center line as possible-the pinion is flipped over so the pinion teeth number faces the lipo--the set screw is about 1mm too long--it slightly rubs the front belt causing slow wear and tear....
