Help!

I stripped the head of one of the 4 (small) screws that secure the centre plate on my TA05.

Any tips on how to remove stripped screws?

Thanks

Cut a slot in the head with a dremmel and use a flat screw driver to turn it out.

Sweet, thanks for the quick response. I will give that a go, i ll have to try and fine a small one though coz it's abit sunken into centre plate...

I just saw somewhere where people have had success with sticking an allen key and super glue, I'll give that a go first.

Didn't work for me, but a tool called an "ezy-out" did it. It's like a tapered reverse drill bit that drills slowly into the screw until it grabs more than the screw does and the screw then just turns out. After that, I replaced all those screws with titanium hex drive ones and bought a good quality driver

Dang, the super glue trick didnt work...

Ezy-Out here I come...

otherwise I will just have to do the Dremel trick.

The funny thing is, these are the 3Racing titanium screws. No good if you ask me.

Once you get it out, the best way to avoid it again is to replace it with better screws. The best to get are the grade 12 black oxide coated ones. The kind Tony's Screws sells. Thanks to me and a few others he does have a kit listed for the TA05 now. And then as said above, make sure you have a good quality set of allen drivers.

Thumbs up

Got it!

Ended up drilling into it, the screw never came apart but it just came loose by itself... Oh well, happy anyway!

Thanks for all the input.

Anyone have experience like this with the aluminum motor mount?

Anyway to fix it without spending another $40 for another tamiya motor mount?

Are you sure that's a Tamiya mount?

You need to use the right screws there, that's why you have problems. Cap screws. Also, I use a washer and a spring washer under the screw head so I don't have to tighten like I'm trying to hold the Titanic with it.

I've never had any problems with 3Racing titanium hex screws. As with any screw you have to use the correct size driver and never overtorque. Also superglue is NOT a substitue for locktite

TA05 has narrower bulkheads and longer dog-bones than the TRF cars. That diff won't fit as it's too wide...
