Questions?? Complete rebuild

So i wrecked my car hard earlier and broke a few parts that i have to replace now. Since this happened and i wont be driving for a while i decided to do a complete rebuild and cleaning. As im tearing it apart i noticed i have a few stripped out allen screws(the head where you put the allen is stripped) . Does anybody out there have any tips or tricks to get these stubborn @#[email protected]#@$ out Any help would be much appreciated

a screw puler would probably work. i take a dremel with a worn down cut off disc and cut a flat head size groove in them.

Alu or steel ? You might be able to get a oversized allen in there. Be sure to use good quality allen wrenches and not the angled ones supplied with the kit.

drill the head with the same size drill untill the head comes off. Then you can remove the stud because it doesn`t have pressure.
Hope this helps you if other things/methods fail. succes.

by the way, i always do a rebuild after a race weekend. On average its approx 20 rebuilds a raceseason.
with a transmission rebuild after training.

Solder your allen driver to the screw and back it out. Or buy a screw puller or notch the screw with a Dremel and back it out with a flat blade driver

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

So i broke 2 tie rods on the left side front wheel, i have 5 stripped hex bolts, I'm pretty sure i ruined my servo and i snapped a pivot block under the front diff. I was drifting in my front yard and a kid down the street came down with his short course truck. I tried to dodge him so he wouldn't monster truck me and i ran full speed into a ford escape's wheel. So now to order all the replacement parts is gonna be around $50. Should i fork out the extra $50 and go all aluminum? I think so....

So i finally got the car apart completely. I had to use a saw to cut the hex heads because i dont have a dremel. It took awhile but its apart. Now its time to clean and access all the damage....fun stuff...

These are great, work around the perimeter of screw until you release it.
