Take a Dremel with a cutting bit, slot the screw, and use a flat head screwdriver to back it out...

This is what I use: http://www.aldn.com/mdrillout/

I don't know where you would find these in sweden but here in the u.s. , tool dealers sell them. They work great as long as you are going to throw away the screw. The nice thing about slotting them is that you can reuse it if you really need to. With these, you can't reuse the screw. But, the nice thing about these is that you won't cut into your chassis, just the screw.

That comment is pretty funny......coming from a "real man" that lives in the "BAY AREA"!!!! Seems to me that Kyosho seems to dominate 1/8 in the "Real Man's Area"".

A real man's car uses 5mm screws for the engine mount not 4mm

Yeah thats the phillip head screw. Notorious for cam out. Try to find yourself some hex head screws and pick up a nice hex wrench set. Like integy or something cheap (works good though).

Youll find youself never having this trouble again.
