Default Wheel hub

I have a losi 810 and I was changing out my wheel hub. Well that little screw inside the lock nut thing. I Broke it. So my question is what do I do now. Do I have to order everything or can I still get it off thanks!

You can try putting it into a bench vise and try to push the pin out with a slightly smaller pin. When the pin is out of the hubs, you'll get the setscrew out of the axle I think.

This is btw the way how I replace my dodgebone pins.

Take the assembly off the car, and pound the pin out as mentioned. Once it's out, take a left-hand drill bit (you may have to go buy one), and use it to back the set screw out.

You can heat up the hub to help get the pin out when you hammer it out, and you can also heat the axle to help get the set screw out.
