Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Depends on the material the steering block is manufactured from.

On my TC5 the orignal steering bocks were a fairly soft plastic, these stripped very easily from a tap.

My Yokomo BD7 has stripped one and again i beleive this is because the standard plastic is fairly soft.

TC5 / TC6 hard plastics never used to strip the steering blocks and in a collision a C Hub or supsension arm would tend to break.

If harder plastic, graphite or aluminium steering blocks were used i dont think they would strip but likely end up breaking another component.
